Abstract:

Everyone should be treated fairly but not necessarily equally. In this capitalistic system the quote above seems to apply very well. The U.S. Marine Corps applies this philosophy throughout its commands. Surely, people who work hard deserve special recognition however, some believe that the Marine Corps equity and promotion system is not fair. The author contends that the pay and promotion system the Marine Corps has in place has its faults, but it is still the best system possible because it takes into account various factors that ensure that the Marine Corps retains its best and brightest.
