WASHINGTON, DC – Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today applauding the Obama Administration for launching the Veterans Employment Center, a new online resource for transitioning service members, veterans, and their spouses:

“The launch of the new Veterans Employment Center today continues this Administration’s strong commitment to easing the transition for our veterans returning home to their families and to the civilian job market.  Helping to connect veterans, transitioning service members, and their spouses with good jobs that take advantage of their skills and work ethic has long been a top priority for House Democrats.  With the unemployment rate among veterans still unacceptably high, we will continue to encourage House Republicans to work with us to advance legislation that will assist veterans in securing the well-paying jobs they need and getting the recognition they deserve for skills and training they received during their military service.  We owe our returning service-members more than just a debt of gratitude; we owe them our helping hands.”
