Estonian Military Faces Staff Drain on Low Wages, Postimees Says

Aug. 15 (Bloomberg) -- Estonia’s senior military personnel is increasingly leaving for private-industry jobs as a result of rising income disparities, Postimees reported, citing data and interviews with former military officers.

Almost 400 officers resigned last year, the most since at least 2006, according to the Tallinn-based newspaper. The government has no funds to raise military wages until next year, Defense Minister Urmas Reinsalu was cited as saying by Postimees.
