EMPLOYMENT GAINS FOR VETS – As reported, the ninth annual veteran’s survey from the Jacksonville-based Wounded Warriors Project shows those surveyed made a 40 percent employment gain between 2014 and 2018. More than 33,000 surveys were completed by veterans. Among those surveyed, the unemployment rate dropped from 20 percent in 2014 to 12 percent in 2018. Although it reflected a notable hiring improvement, 12 percent is still a significantly higher unemployment rate than among the general population. According to the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, Florida’s unemployment rate in October was 3.4 percent.
