1 min read

President Barack Obama has set the next military pay raise at 1.6 percent for 2017 which will take effect on Jan. 1, Military Times reported Wednesday.

Leo Shane writes Obama wrote a letter to Congress to request the pay hike that represents an increase from the 1.3 percent move in 2016.

The 1.6 percent pay raise will provide an additional $400 per year for most junior enlisted troops while mid-career officers will receive approximately $1,500 in annual pay boost, Shane reported.

Obama wrote economic conditions and budget constraints affected the military pay raise, the publication stated.
