Young veterans who served in our military since September 11th also have one of the highest unemployment rates in the nation, one much higher than the national average.
It's time we close the opportunity gap between veterans and non veterans by supporting the Military and Veterans Education Protection Act -- a crucial education investment in our nation's former soldiers.
Veterans deserve an equal shot at getting hired, and that begins with equal education opportunities.The Military Veterans Education Protection Act will bolster education opportunities for unemployed veterans by ensuring for-profit schools don't take advantage of former service members with expensive and low-quality classes.
Support job opportunities for America's veterans!
Dear U.S. Congress,
It's time to solve the giant opportunity gap between veterans and non veterans by tackling the outrageous unemployment rates affecting our former soldiers. Enact the Military and Veterans Education Protection Act to prevent returning soldiers from being taken advantage of by the high-cost but low-quality education opportunities of for-profit colleges.
Veterans shouldn't have to fight so hard to reenter the job market upon returning, yet they continue to face a much higher unemployment rate than non veterans. It's time to implement equal opportunity programs for veterans seeking employment, as well as the education that leads to employment.
The Military and Veterans Education Protection Act will help prevent for-profit colleges from taking advantage of America's 857,000 unemployed veterans. Since so many veterans turn to for-profit colleges for quality education, it is important that this education is relevant to the job market--a notion that this bill will push.
Support equal employment opportunities for America's veterans by enacting the Military and Veterans Education Protection Act!
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
