Today is Veterans Day…take time out to salute the troops who protect our nation. Whether you believe in war or not, these men and women unselfishly risk their lives and should be honored on this day.
When taking a moment to praise their efforts, if you are a business owner, please show your appreciation by setting aside jobs for our Vets. They currently have a higher unemployment rate than the national average, which is a sad fact. Reports suggest the people who fight for our country, have an unemployment rate of 12.1 percent as of October 2011, vs. 9 percent for the U.S. overall.
Thank you to our Veterans…let’s hope business owners step up and help get you employed.
