Veterans Earn $5 More Per Hour than Non-Veterans

  • National programs to help veterans get acclimated to life in the private sector

Enlisting in the military is a lifelong sacrifice. Service members and their families face enough while they’re fighting for our nation, but they meet a new kind of struggle when it’s time to find a career and settle down in the private sector as a veteran. 

There are a lot of misconceptions about career prospects after the military for our veterans.

As it turns out, researchers from the University of Akron recently conducted a study showing a strong correlation between military service and better job prospects, as well as higher wages. “Though the transition from military service to the private sector can be difficult for many veterans, when veterans do find employment, they tend to be quite successful in the workplace,” Cristine Boyd from the University of Akron writes.
