Since biz is like 95% turbo-neets and minimum wage cucks, why don't you consider joining the military. Too afraid to leave the fucking basement?

For all these poorfags who whine and bitch
OKAY YEAH WELL YOU CANT JUST STUMBLE ONTO A 50K A YEAR JOB, YOU WERE BORN LUCKY

I'm getting paid 50k a year to lift weights, jerk-off and shitpost, with only a highschool diploma and no "connections". I've gotten technical training while being paid, housed, and fed.

I'm on my way to purchasing my 2nd home at 24 years old after having only been in for 2 years.

Get your fucking school paid for which automatically puts you ahead of all the other wage cucks who are indebted for a decade after leaving school.

Go cocoon mode and work on your degree while you are serving with Tuition assitance, or get civilian certification just by tracking the hours you already work.

"BUT MILITARYFAG", you might say
"I don't wanna die for Israel or Oil!"

Then don't become a fucking grunt, and get a technical job where the risk is basically the same as any other industrial enviroment job.

I personally do not think im gonna stay in past my first enlistment, but you'd have to be either a fool or too big of a pussy, who is afraid to leave the nest, to not see that the opportunity is ripe for the taking.

Think of it as a stepping stone, a way to drag yourself out of the shitty life you currently live (which I know you do)

Most of you wont heed this advice because it requires leaving your comfort zone (ie your mothers basement). You'd rather sit around and bitch and moan about how its the country's fault, the economy's fault, your parents fault, and EVERYONE else except your own fault for the situation you are in. Well here is your opportunity to fucking sacrifice alittle and truly earn something for yourself.

Most of Veeky Forums is retarded.

Decent pay, education benefits, housing assistance, and, in all honesty, fairly low risk unless you get deployed to an active warzone.

Literally bullshit. EVEN if you ranked all the way up to E-7 in this time (you didn't) you'd be making about 36K. Even officers with your years of experience don't make $50K and they have a bachelor's degree.

There's nothing wrong with choosing to serve in the military. But joining solely for economic reasons, in my opinion, is very unwise.

Lmfao kid, I was making 80K a year (self-employed) 1 year out of University and I wasn't the sharpest kid back then either.

I would only suggest the military for people without any drive.

It seems to be a great way for certain people to become responsible in their lives. That being said, from a purely financial perspective it's not that great.

Most of them don't want to get it for one of many reasons. You can't handhold them through it, at best you can jog their thinking a little bit when they are stuck in a rut.

Well, let's assume that he's made E4 at two years. That's 25k base salary.

subtotal: 25k

Now let's assume that he's got an AFSC like 1A8x1, which is airborne cryptologic linguist. That comes with aircrew incentive pay (I think that's now listed as enlisted flight pay) and linguist bonuses. The flight pay comes in around $150 a month, which is $1800 annually. The linguist bonuses come in at 300-500 per language and max out at 1k per month with a minimum of two languages required. In tech school you can probably max out one language if you immerse and take the extra classes that are optional but not mandatory in your free time. He can probably rate 3/3 in his main language for 500 and maybe 1/1 or 2/2 in another language, which is anywhere from 250-300 monthly. We're looking at anywhere from 8400 to 9600 annually from language bonuses, with the possibility of capping at 12,000 if he fleshed out his languages.

subtotal: 35-39k

Now you have to factor in housing. At some bases for an E4 it's about 1k per month, but if he's overseas someplace like Mildenhall/Lakenheath he gets something like 36k annually for BAH and also gets COLA which is a few thousand anually

Incidentally this is tax free.

subtotal: 47k-80k

Now on to deployments. If he gets deployed then all of his earnings are tax free during the deployment, and he qualifies for monthly bonuses from $100-250 per month. His marginal rate of taxation is wildly reduced as are his expenditures.

I don't even want to offer you a grand total, but the main issue is this: most young guys in the military are testosterone driven and just learning how to adult, and they blow their money on booze and strippers from pretty much the word go.

Let me redpill this for you civies.
50k a year
This is assuming you are either married or hit E-5 in x amount of years.
Your base pay is less than 24k a year and you recieve a housing allowance if you meet one of the two criteria mentioned above.
You can assume you are gonna get a decent job but it is a crap shoot and purely luck where you will end up.
retirement is now retired
They recently phased out retirement. If you join now you will have a 401k ripoff with up to 2% of your base pay matching.

Now for the good shit.
If you have student loan debt you can get loan forgiveness if you get it written in your opening contract. YOU MUST MAKE SURE IT IS INCLUDED BEFORE SIGNING.
When you complete 3 years of the military you are eligible for the gi bill which will pay your entire public college bill and pay you a housing allowance for the zip code of the school. For example university of colorado boulder would pay you 1600 a month while attending classes. You will also get a yearly check for $1000 for books and school supplies.

The va loan. The government will cosign your loan depending on the area you live. The minimum is 100k but the area I live is 250k. This only gets you a lower interest rate and makes it so you dont need to put a down payment.

Federal jobs. If you have a disability rating of at least 10% when you separate then you are one tier higher on federal job applications. If you are over 30% then you are two tiers higher which is the highest level. For reference acid reflux is rated at 20% disability.

Minimum wage is like 15K in most US States.

I made 9.25$/hr when I was 20 and made ~16K after taxes and shit; Although, to be fair, it was at a shit tier factory with no overtime, no bonuses and no paid holidays.

I've made more this year then I did back then and I work for myself doing different sub-contracting, web design and networking stuff and I only work like 22 hours a week (and go to uni full time.)

It's literally easier, less time consuming and more profitable to make money flipping shit on facebook than it is to work a minimum wage job.

happy_sad
happy_sad

That was my typo. Regardless, the new retirement plan (2018+) still has a pension, that's very clear.

Old plan: 2.5 % pension/yr with retirement at 20 years (50 % at 20). You get nothing if you don't make it to 20.

New plan: 2 % pension/yr with retirement at 20 years (40 % at 20), plus 5 % TSP matching. If you don't make it to 20 years you still get the TSP matching.

"The pension is going away" is a myth, but it is getting smaller.

Evilember

Read your training again, that's literally the opposite of what it says. The blended retirement *is* the 2018+ system.

militarytimes.com/story/military/benefits/retirement/2016/02/07/new-military-retirement-law-creates-big-decisions-many-troops/79347998/

Under the new retirement system, military pensions will shrink by 20 percent, but otherwise will function the same as the current system, with the pension earned after 20 years of active-duty service and checks payable immediately upon separation.

Yearly pension accrual is going from 2.5 % to 2 % with the 2018+ plan, a reduction of 40 %. This means 50 % at 20 years instead of 40, for instance.

Look, I'll even go get the link of the official infographic for you, so you can have a pretty picture.

Hi from /k/'s Military Enlistment General.

So here's the lowdown on the benefits you get as a Solider/Sailor/Airman/Marine:

Base pay
The taxable portion of your income. Tied directly to the number of years you served, and your rank. These tables can be easily found online.

BAS
Food allowance. Non-taxable, usually around $350/mo

BAH
Housing allowance. Is tied to mostly region, then goes up a bit with rank. Non taxable.

Medical
Anything and everything medical/dental/vision is 100% no cost to you.

GI Bill
36 months of all-expense paid college, best used after you get out of the service. This one of the biggest reasons people enlist.

30 days of leave
You get 30 days a year of paid vacation. The catch is that generally you have to be on leave if you are going more than ~6 hours away from your base, so you have to use it on weekends if you're far away.

Tuition assistance
Your specific branch will pay $4500/yr for tuition while you're active.

I, as a 2nd year E-3, get about $1500 twice a month. To achieve that same level of net pay, your job would have to pay you about $50k.
I'm a relatively low rank, and haven't been in very long. An E-7 who has been in for 15 years is getting paid something like $5500 a month, which equates to over $90k in a civilian job.

If you factor in the healthcare and education benefits, that number only goes up.

I'll be up for about 45 more minutes if anyone's got questions.

Garbage Can Lid

36 months of college

Soft_member
Soft_member

The 36 months do not have to be consecutive.

And you have to serve 181 days in peacetime, but since I think we're technically at war it's 90 days. Either way, if you do your 4 year contract you'll have full GI BIll and VA benefits.

OP here, YA GOT ME, FC2

For all you wondering about this MAGIC 50k

E5 base pay 2400
BAH 1700 (tax free)
BAS 400 (tax free)

Monthly 4500

Annually 54k, the only bill to my name is my cellphone, and a mortgage but I already have my first home rented out.

Also with the GI, dont forget you can get upto full E-5 BAH depending on credit hours you are taking.

Soft_member
Soft_member

Also you get a good job and a good re-enlistment bonus in a tax free zone and your looking at a solid 50-75k bonus for like 3-4 years ontop of your already 50k+ annually.

So if you wanna divide that up its very plausible to be making anywhere from 65k-85k and no bills with half if your money being tax free entirely in less than 4 years. WITH NO COLLEGE

I'm disabled so that's not an option. Hence wagecuckery at a desk job.

I need an authority figure to use me like a dog to give me purpose in life

The Major I worked for during most of my contract was cool as fuck. Every boss I had in the civilian world was way more authoritarian and douchey.

It's ironic because you are saying that we all only think what the military tells us to think and when and that its this fucking echochamber that breaks everyone and we all become fucking zombies

AND YET, you are spouting retarded ((counter-culture)) stereotypes that others have implanted in you that you are now blindly regurgitating.

If you come into the military looking for someone else to take charge of your life and give you purpose , then you absolutely have it, eat up all the indoctrination bullshit they feed you and let your time in the military define WHO YOU ARE FOREVER. You'll be one of those guys that the first thing they say when they introduce themselves is they are a vet.

But I will tell you there are PLENTY of people who are IN THE MILITARY who hate the government, hated the military before and still despise the "BIG" Army/Navy etc etc, while they are in, and who are really only here because the economy is pretty shitty right now and they wanted to travel while getting paid.

You see that "HOOYAH" shit in the fucking low IQ jobs because they need to feel PRIDE IN THEIR DUTY FOR THEIR NATION by digging ditches and moving sandbags. In the tech jobs, we saw an opportunity for free training and having our school paid for, so we then can get out and use our clearances and training to find a half decent job without going into debt.

I can truly only speak for myself but I honestly view this as nothing more than a regular job. As soon as this stops being useful for me or something better presents it self, I am out, never re-enlisting and never looking back.

How did you get into web design? Have wanted to for a bit but don't know where to start (or where to find clients/enployers)

join military
cap out at maybe 50-80k after spending years and learning languages etc
only women nearby are base sluts
even if you bag a base slut she's going to cheat on you with jamal the second you're deployed
constantly living in shitty housing
the higher salary isn't even that good because when you're deployed you're literally on-call 24/7

There are so many better career paths.

dip out after 4-6
get a free degree on GI bill
land a cushy contracting job making six figures because of your intel experience

And then after you finish your bachelor's you're going to get passed over for someone who has their masters (since bachelor's are becoming depreciated as fuck now.)
Then you'll spend another 2-3 years pursuing that and by the time you graduate you'll finally have a nice job, too bad you'll be 35 at that point and have pissed away the best years of your life in shitty middle eastern deserts with a bunch of retards.

I'd assume that chads don't go into the military at all that high frequencies unless there is a real deal thing going on

Their parents get them into West Point and then they hold high ranking positions.

Chad would never be a recruit.
