Revealed: the 30-year economic betrayal dragging down Generation Y’s income. Exclusive new data shows how debt, unemployment and property prices have combined to stop millennials taking their share of western wealth.

Do jobs make you take an oath?

Okay.. and then? How does that effect you day to day?

Are you contractually obligated for years at a time?

Having a guaranteed job for x years is a relief to a lot of people, not a sacrifice.

Do you forego your constitutional rights?

Does this really bother you on a day to day basis?

Hold you to a secondary law system and thereby process you through double jeopardy?

Okay, so how many people does this actually impact? I don't mean how many of you are susceptible, I mean how many are actually doing something wrong and are unfairly double convicted? This is not a sacrifice if you aren't breaking the law.

Are you guaranteed to be moved somewhere with zero consideration for your preferences?

It's a part of the job you signed on to. That's only a sacrifice if you really don't want to be moving around. I really doubt many people sign up thinking "I need to do this for my country".

And that's where our contention lays. 100% of the people I know (small sample size of 5) absolutely did not sign up for the good of the country. They signed up because they didn't have the grades for college, wanted to murder foreigners, and because they didn't know where they wanted their lives to go.

I yield that I know there are a lot of good, moral people legitimately making these sacrifices because they feel serving in the military makes a positive difference. I disagree that everyone working in the military should be treated as if they are the abovementioned perfect soldier. I would even dare to say the majority of people in the military are not of that special breed, and I definitely don't feel obligated to treat them any differently that those of us in the normal work force.
