Chronically high US unemployment has led to a difficult jobs market and veterans and military spouses are suffering at an outsize rate. Nationwide, 1 million veterans are jobless and 1 of every 4 military spouses is out of work.
Post 9/11 veterans are having the most difficulty, with younger veterans aged 18 to 24 facing a staggering 30% unemployment rate.
Accolade Security Network is immensely proud of its flagship program, The Warfighter Initiative. This is our pursuit to hire an 80% combat veteran workforce, focusing on the disabled veterans returning from Afghanistan/Iraq, and pay them a living wage that enables them to support their young families and continue to serve.
