Veteran Unemployment at Four Year Low

ReportsVeteran Unemployment Lowest in Four Years - Veterans Affordable Housing Program | Photo Credit: morguefile.Ladyheart from the Bureau of Labor Statistics have revealed that the unemployment rate for veterans dropped to around 6 percent in October, representing the lowest it has been in four years. Veteran unemployment has been dropping over the past year, despite a slight month-over-month increase for Iraq and Afghanistan veterans in September. Recent veterans from the middle eastern conflicts are at approximately 10 percent, which is above the national 8 percent unemployment.

The overall veteran unemployment rate of 6 percent still represents 700,000 veterans that are out of work. Despite this grim figure, it is still a vast improvement over 2011.

While a major theme in the upcoming elections has been jobs and jobs creation, veterans have remained out of the spotlight, despite increasing numbers of young veterans from Afghanistan and Iraq.
