Gov. Rick Snyder to job creators: Create jobs for veterans
Michigan Governor Rick Snyder kicked-off the 2012 Mackinac Policy Conference by asking attendees at the Detroit Regional Chamber event to hire veterans. Snyder told assembled business leaders they must do more to find opportunities for returning service members.
"Unemployment for veterans hovers around 30% and that's simply unacceptable," Snyder said. "The people who can do a lot to solve that problem are us."
Snyder asked the room to make a point to attend the conference's Wednesday session on veteran's entering the work place. -- JTW
