Goal: 10,000 Progress: 4,240
Sponsored by: The Veterans Site

What if every military veteran had a job waiting for him the moment he stepped off duty? There are myriad employers within the American labor sector that are prepared to hire veterans — but many of these employers don't have the capabilities to connect themselves with the veteran community.

For those returning from service, finding employment can be a burdensome and discouraging task. It's up to the Department of Labor to reach out to employers interested in hiring veterans and help them connect to the veteran community. This means retaining close relationships with prospective employers, keeping track of separating service members and matching them with employment relevant to their skills, and providing separating service members with resources and information about employers who are hiring.

Tell the Department of Labor it must implement better programs and initiatives to connect separating service members to employment opportunities.

Dear Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis,

I am writing to you today on behalf of all of our American service members returning home from duty as well as those who will return home in the future. Their honorable service in the military is critical to the safety of our country, and that's why they shouldn't have to worry about how to get by at home when they have finished fulfilling their duties.

It's the task of the Department of Labor to connect veterans with employers relevant to their skills. There are myriad employers interested in hiring veterans, but who are having a hard time finding ways to connect with the veteran community. The Department of Labor must improve its efforts to help these entities find each other.

We know there are industries that are hungry to employ veterans, and we know there are veterans who are hungry to start working — it's your job to do the rest.
