Wal-Mart to Hire Any Veteran

Walmart is really stepping up!  They’re putting their “military where their mouth is!”

They have just announced one of the biggest job commitments ever made by a company.  Walmart plans to hire almost any military veteran who wants a job.  It all starts on Memorial Day and they expect to hire 100,000 veterans over the next 5 years.  The program is being offered to any vet who received an honorable discharge from the military within a year of apply for a job. 

This is an amazing step in putting America back to work.  Since the recession, unemployment rates for troops discharged from active duty have been higher than the US average. 

 

Thank you to Walmart!  I am going to start shopping there more often.
