H.R. 4155 and S. 2239
After serving our country
honorably, all veterans deserve the chance to earn a paycheck
and support their families. Unfortunately, the unemployment rate
for veterans returning home from Iraq and Afghanistan remains
stubbornly high. According to the latest Employment Situation of
Veterans' annual report from The Bureau of Labor Statistics, the
unemployment rate for veterans who served post 9/11 was 12.1
percent in 2011, compared with the jobless rate for all veterans
of 8.3 percent. H.R. 4155 and it's companion bill S.2239 were
written to streamline
the bureaucratic processes for veterans with relevant training
to get jobs when they return home.
