Factors That Affect Military Pay
Proposed Pay Charts:
House lawmakers have released a proposal for troops to receive a 2.1 percent pay raise in 2017. The White House has already requested a 1.6 percent pay raise for 2017, which is higher than 1.3 percent increase received by troops in 2016, but lower than the 2.1 percent raise that would match private-sector wage growth.
