Summary

Summary

Recruiting difficulties and manning shortfalls in certain specialties have prompted the Air Force to consider significant alterations to the compensation system. The authors describe Air Force recruitment and retention, then examine the current pay system and suggest how it could be strengthened. Finally, they assess two pay concepts, skill pay and capability pay, and consider ways to analyze their effects and cost-effectiveness.
