What bunk....smart businesses generally hire vets at a higher rate because they USUALLY HAVE a higher work ethic! She’s using them .... again...
Exactly right. I represented my company at a Hiring Our Heroes event, and they wanted each employer there to sign a form pledging our support of their gov’t initiative. I refused to sign it.
Knowing that Obama needs to push his jobs bill, and knowing he’d use the returning veterans as poster children for it, there was no way I’d submit my company’s information pledging support. Guess which companies would be the first ones checked up on?
At any rate, I hire a great number of veterans at our manufacturing facility. By and large, they’re among our best employees, and we fully support our reservists who have to take whatever time off they need to serve.
Point is, I do what I already know is right, and has already proven to work. I don’t need some ultra-liberal communists telling me who I can and cannot hire.
