More Veterans, Disabled or Not, Finding Jobs in U.S. Agencies
November 8, 2011
Just in time for Veterans Day, the administration is trumpeting its success in hiring those who served in uniform. It's a bit of good news to distract us from the Herman Cain circus.
"The government is doing better that it ever has done" in hiring veterans, Joseph Kennedy, the Office of Personnel Management's deputy associate director for employee services, said Tuesday.
He was addressing a meeting of the Chief Human Capital Officers Council, the government's top personnel managers. Documents distributed at the meeting said that "the percentage of veterans in the federal government is at an all time high" and that "disabled veterans are finding employment opportunities within the federal government like never before."
Kennedy had statistics to back him up.
