This from the VA:
“The BLS employment statistics were released today. Attached is our ‘cheat sheet’ for your use and information. We have also included the 2nd quarter 2015 statistic report. The national unemployment rate decreased from 5.5% to 5.3% and the Veteran unemployment numbers decreased from 5.0% to 4.4%. Thanks to all of you who are working directly or indirectly, to ensure our Veterans have meaningful employment.”
Let’s take a look at the details.
This chart shows the last twelve months unemployment rate by month. Civilians are the blue line, all male veterans the red line, all male era I (Desert Storm) the green line, and post 9/11 male veterans purple.
