Good Jobs for Veterans

The unemployment rate for veterans is over 10%. That’s unacceptable. We need policies that support good, family-supporting union jobs for veterans.

Labor unions joined with elected officials and veterans and announced a new policy platform dedicated to assisting our nation's heroes in securing good jobs upon returning from service. Click here for Labor's 7-point policy platform.
