New Initiatives for Employers to Hire Veterans

Hiring Veterans is the right thing to do…these men and women put their families and lives on hold to help uphold the ideals of freedom and democracy. They deserve the opportunity to earn a living and pursue a productive life when they return home. Today, President Obama will propose a plan to not only further incent employers to hire qualified veterans, but will also challenge the Private Sector and the Departments of Defense and Veteran’s Affairs to create men and women who leave the service ready to begin careers in the Private Sector.The challenge will include:

  • Hire or train 100,000 unemployed veterans or their spouses by the end of 2013
  • A Presidential Call for Career-Ready Military
  • A new initiative from the Department of Labor to deliver enhanced career development and job search service packages to transitioning veterans at their local One-Stop Career Centers

Putting the men and women of our military and their spouses back to work will take on a much needed focus and in doing the right thing, everyone wins.
