The Hiring 100k Military Spouses campaign seeks to elevate military spouse employment in the same way while providing real solutions for military spouses seeking meaningful 21st-century career opportunities.
This campaign will:
• Address the issues of military spouse unemployment and underemployment by raising awareness throughout the country
• Provide a unique avenue for businesses and organizations to make a commitment to hire military spouses
• Encourage businesses to share best practices for hiring and retaining military spouse talent
Military spouses are unemployed at a rate of 16%, over four times the rate of their civilian counterparts. The issue of military spouse unemployment and underemployment significantly impacts the retention and readiness rates of our all-volunteer force; ultimately making spouse employment an issue of national security.
Thank you for being committed to hiring military spouses. Collectively, we will work to break down the barriers to identifying meaning career opportunities for military families.
