More Marines are growing unhappy with their work and their compensation, driving "re-enlistment intent" to a three-year low and leaving the service scrambling to retain top talent.Add retention issues with recruiting problems and you have trouble brewing on the horizon.
These are among the findings of the service's annual retention survey, which Marine Corps Times obtained via the Freedom of Information Act. Among its 4,200 re-enlistment eligible respondents, 38 percent indicated they were unlikely to sign on for another term — up from 31 percent in 2013 and 33 percent in 2014.
Of course the claim that compensation is driving all this is pure bullshit and I'm surprised that they would say such a thing.
Watch this story...these are just the first winds of a storm that's gonna hit the USMC and the rest of the services.
