NavyShooter said:*shrug* I'd rather see an annual cost of living increase, but understand that it's not how things work in this world. We have been tied (in a way) to PSAC for our pay raises.
Not only a loss in buying power, but if the CAF wants to be competitive in recruitment, then it needs to offer pay that is adjusted yearly to the CPI.NavyShooter said:I'd rather have the money on time....when it comes as backpay, it is a nice chunk, however, not getting an annual increase along the way means that each year our salaries lose buying power against the economy due to inflation.

kratz said:$96.06 pay + $8.65 PILL = $104.71 per day / 7.5hrs = $13.96 per hr for Class A OS/AB + additional benefits (the value of SDB, Reserve Dental Plan and Education Reimbursement). I think the pay and benefits package is competitive for entry level training positions.
PuckChaser said:I get $8.21 an hour if you count a 24 hour day we're all liable to recall on. You can make the numbers mean anything, and reservists are no where close to being underpaid.
Piece of Cake said:I would argue that reservists are underpaid by 15 per cent.
dapaterson said:Class A, B or C? COATS, PRes, Rangers or Supp Res?
PuckChaser said:Endure the full hardships of RegF members and they'll get paid the same. PRes members get that 15% back when they're on Cl C, doing the same job as the RegF. That's a whole other ball of wax though. ff topic:
