In Making Waves Conversations by Mark Sylvester

Military Spouse Unemployment, Why it's a National Crisis. Why it's costing our nation billions.

Military spouses face one of the highest unemployment rates of any demographic in America at nearly 30%. While also facing an incredible under-employment problem. The military, government, nonprofits, corporations, and Department of Defense are spending millions to solve this issue, yet it continues to climb. Let's discuss why they are missing the mark and what we can do as a nation to support those who sacrifice for those who serve.
