Soldiers often complain about their pay, saying it doesn't make up for the hardships of the army, but there are some perks, like a free pension and free dental treatment.

When asked in 2016 how satisfied they are with their pay, about a third of soldiers said they were satisfied, a third not satisfied, and a third neither one nor the other.


  • Satisfied: 34%.
