Manchin's Message from the Hill to the Mountains

Leading "Veterans Jobs on the Hill" Day

Just over a year ago, my good friend, Senator Mark Kirk from Illinois, and I launched a new Caucus here in the Senate. Our purpose was to bring attention to the problem of unemployment among our military veterans.

There's no sugarcoating the fact that the job market is tough, especially for our young veterans. Unemployment among these veterans has reached crisis proportions, according to the latest data. Veterans aged 18-24 have a 31.3 percent jobless rate. Even more staggering is the jobless rate for women veterans in the same age group - 55.7 percent. 

Today, the Senate Veterans Jobs Caucus is the Congressional Veterans Jobs Caucus, with bipartisan and bicameral support. Our goal is to simply invite the public and private sector to reduce our veterans' unemployment rate. 

Our motto is, if you want to help a vet, hire a vet.
