This study concentrates on aspects of military and civilian compensation that motivate employees and provide incentives upon which job performance and productivity may depend. The study achieves its end by applying successful attributes of civilian compensation to military remuneration systems. Its main purpose is to judge whether military pay is structured toward a modern view of performance-based compensation and whether it is comparable to civilian pay. At issue is a military pay system that is anchored to principles of institutionalism and paternalism. Instead of paying workers according to their respective contribution, the military continues to use a compensation system as old as the military itself. That is, it tailors compensation to a force of unskilled personnel serving as seaman and foot soldiers. In the twentieth century, as technological developments demand a skilled military force that calls for a greater percent of highly trained technicians, specialists, and craftsmen, focus upon compensation structures may prove critical. Hence, the need to assess military pay systems, which is the primary determinant of the price of military manpower, is all the more pressing.
