AUSA is part of a coalition of organizations that are committed to supporting legislation for veterans, service members, and their families. They share credit for the “Veterans Skills to Jobs Act”, a law that will address the high veterans unemployment rate of 23.3%. The Act streamlines the process for veterans to utilize the skills they acquired in the military. Previously, veterans had to enroll in redundant civilian training to qualify for many technical positions. Now, their military training will be more readily accepted and ‘certify’ them in a number of job categories.
