Here is a link to a radio interview in Massachusetts. Several experts on US Veteran Unemployment share their views. The best is our HirePatriots Massachusetts Leader, Wil Corey, a former US Army tank driver.http://bit.ly/ubFOyD
In this interview, as in most others, they rely on our current administration to provide them. Unfortunately, our government releases numbers that help them get re-elected, not the real numbers. Unfortunately, our 21st Century political leaders rely on misinformation to keep us sedated.
In actuality, our 9/11 veterans have a 40% unemployment rate. Primarily, our “grunts,” the men and women who carry our wars on their backs, the Infantry, do not have the resumes and references that civilians have. They sacrificed several years of their lives to protect us. And translating the maturity and experience they have gained is nor appreciated nor recognized by US employers. Therefore, many of our Infantry do not find sustainable employment for 2 to 4 years after transitioning back into the civilian world. These young men and women who answered the Call after 9/11 need your help.
HirePatriots encourages US citizens to create a nationwide safety net for these great US citizen warriors. Whenever any US citizen needs any help around their home or yard, they can just post it for free on HirePatriots.com. It is a wonderful patriotic experience that will make a positive impact upon your life and the veterans that you hire.
