President Obama announced a new plan today which he hopes will be taken seriously by Congress. The plan is meant to create jobs and employment opportunities for veterans all around the country. President Obama hopes that Congress will seriously consider his idea as it would likely create thousands of jobs which would likely target veterans in particular; the jobs created will simply be government contract jobs and as such many of the veterans are already very skilled in the department they would be hired in.
This is great news for everyone as it not only means more jobs for unemployed veterans but it also means a reduced stress on the welfare and unemployment system. According to President Obama this job plan is necessary because he and others recognize the fact that too many veterans are being abandoned and left without jobs after their service to the country.
No word on exactly when Congress may consider the plan or possibly propose a bill but Obama says he will continue to push the issue. Creating thousands of jobs by offering new government contracts and new military contracts is a simple and effective way to employ thousands of out of work veterans that are already skilled in the fields needed. This so called veteran’s employment benefit plan may be quite a ways off in the future but Obama says he is planning to make it one of his number one priorities as veterans have been one of the most neglected groups nationwide.
