Pay Troops At Least $15 Per Hour? A GOP Lawmaker Wants to Raise the Military’s Minimum Wage
A Republican lawmaker is renewing an effort to boost the salary of the lowest-paid service members. Service members would be entitled to a base pay rate of at least $31,200 per year, or the equivalent of $15 per hour for a 40-hour workweek, under the Raising Annual Income of Servicemembers by Enhancing, or RAISE, Minimum Base Pay Act reintroduced by Rep. Mike Garcia, R-Calif., late last week.
