Abstract : An analysis is presented of compensation received in civilian employment as compared to that existing in the Naval service. The wages listed are basic wages, and do not include fringe benefits, bonuses etc. It must be pointed out that there are no clearcut standards or criteria which may be used to equate military with civilian occupations. The results of this report indicate that there is a disparity between the pay of military personnel and those engaged in the same field of endeavor in the civilian industrial complex. The disparity is that the military are paid less than their civilian counterparts, and this disparity is more pronounced at the junior officer level than it is at the senior officer level. The same situation exists in a comparison of Navy ratings with related civilian occupations; namely, that Navy enlisted personnel receive less income than civilians engaged in the same type of work for performing the same duties.
