Need some yard work done right, planning a move? You name it a vet can do it and do it well.
Mark Baird the founder of Hire Patriots stated in an NBC Nightly News interview : “The few hundred dollars earned doing those jobs allow veterans to make car payments, pay utility bills, and help make ends meet while they look for long-term employment and make what could be a long transition from military service to civilian life.”
“The average veteran is going to take five years before he’s able to sustainably employ himself and take care of his family,” said Baird. “Even if he’s able to get a job, if you have three kids and a wife and you’re working at Starbucks for $8.50 an hour, it’s not meeting the bills.
The site has hosted over 50,000 one-day jobs since it launched, and more than 1,500 full-time opportunities. The Bairds say they have about 10,000 visitors each week to the site, and have helped thousands of veterans find some form of employment over the years.
