How do all. Situation: 21 years old, in a minimum wage job ,still living at home. I've been pondering on the armed forces for the last few years. Was more set to Regular but have a commitment (the other half). I've been more or less set on climbing the career ladder through the years, or at least actually having a career. Which is why the army appeals to me aswell as other factors. Just wondered if anyone with experience whilst in the TA,if you can make two ends meet whilst having a low income wage? Or am i barking up the wrong tree. Thanks for any replies.
