I love the rant, but it would only be fair to point out that military members have other benefits (housing, medical, schooling, etc.) that aren't available to burger flippers. That said, most military personnel are underpaid, IMO.
With many benefits the pay is:
E-1 under 4 months..2,904 x 12 = $34,848
E-5 over 3 years.......3,919 x 12 = $47,028
This does NOT include the tax advantage of over $200 a month as housing, clothing, is not taxable.
