CONGRESSMAN COOK’S VETERAN’S EMPLOYMENT BILL EXPECTED TO BECOME LAW

Unemployed veterans, listen up: A new bill, about to become law, may help you earn a paycheck. Reporter David Haldane tells us what’s up…
If you’re a U.S. military veteran having a hard time finding a job, you may be about to get some help; a new bill by Congressman Paul Cook will award businesses for hiring people just like you.
The bill—HR244, otherwise known as the Hire Vets Act of 2017—was approved by the Senate this week. After returning for some minor tweaking to the House, which passed it unanimously last year, the measure is expected to become law.
What it will do, Cook says, is promote private sector recruiting, hiring and retention of men and women who have served honorably in the U.S. military. The means: a voluntary awards program recognizing businesses that participate.
Cook, a former U.S. Marine Corps colonel himself, says the program will provide “an opportunity for Americans to see which companies truly live up to the employment promises they make to veterans.”
