Military Recruitment

by

Thanks to my buddy Lauren for this link (you can see her in the video clip) http://abcnews.go.com/Video/playerIndex?id=2829157

Eventually they get to the point that the marines desire to have more recruits than currently they are getting.  ABC talks about them having to lower their standards.  Not once was it mentioned that they could increase the wages they offer, or give a bigger bonus in order to attract more people.  That would be silly.

    N-space! Their policy is effectively a pay increase for lower quality troops.

  2. Eli Says:

    Alternatively, they could substitute capital for labor, or even scale back operations.

    So true, so true.

  4. Jason Says:

    I like that Stew, a pay increase for lower quality troops. I’m curious what the turnover rate is on people in the military/marines. Are people staying in a shorter amount of time or longer. Is there a net increase in number in the army or is the number decreasing?

  5. Lauren Says:

    I don’t know numbers but supposedly re-enlistment rates are at an all time high among Marines/soldiers serving IN Iraq. That’s pretty telling.
