Through the dedication of our partners, like Starbucks, we are working to collectively recognize the unparalleled leadership skills and work ethic military spouses bring to the workplace and break down the barriers to employment that an overwhelming number of our military spouses face.
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.
