If You Support Veterans, Then Hire Them

The State of Connecticut Employment statistics have Veterans hovering around a 15% unemployment, almost double the state average.  It’s even worse than Urban areas like Waterbury, CT.

Today, I applied for a job doing construction work, in order to pick up some spare cash while working on our foundation.  I wasn’t skilled enough, even though I’m a disabled veteran.  It’s tough out there in the real world.  Our group has a tough time readjusting to society and family when we finish our tours/military career.

There are so many benefits to hiring veterans (disabled, too).  Tax credits in the thousands are given to those who hire disabled veterans.  Veterans can also handle a great deal of stress, and weigh problems differently than civilian counterparts.   We also work very well in small teams and under pressure.
