Employ the New Greatest Generation

“Post-9/11 veterans are the key to America’s economic future. We are not a charity, but an investment. And the time to invest is now. ”

—IAVA Policy Agenda

Congress passed the IAVA-led Vow to Hire Heroes Act of 2011, a landmark piece of legislation to help reduce veteran unemployment. As a result of our efforts, the unemployment rate for new veterans continues to drop; however, it still remains higher than the national average for veterans and civilians. While unemployment seems to be decreasing overall, there are rising concerns about long-term career success and underemployment in the veteran population. There are two tracks to veteran employment: 1) matching veterans to the right career; and 2) facilitating their entrepreneurship. Both tracks are good for the veteran, good for employers, good for the economy and good for America.
