GA to get federal grant to help veterans find jobs

ATLANTA -- Georgia is set to receive a $750,000 federal grant to help returning Army veterans find jobs.

The funding was announced Tuesday by Labor Secretary Hilda Solis. The grants are set to be implemented over the next two years.

Agency officials say the money will help pay for job training and placement services. Job-related outreach activities will also be expanded.

Similar federal grants will go to Texas, Illinois and North Carolina. The four states have large populations of Army veterans who claim unemployment and have been actively working with both the Labor Department and the Army to improve veterans' access to the public workforce system.

"grant to help returning Army veterans find jobs"

What jobs? There ain't any. The ones there are, are filled with illegal aliens.

I bet they haven't been figured into the unemployment rate yet either. I hear the more accurate rate is 12%.
