WISCONSIN EXPANDS WORKFORCE OPPORTUNITIES FOR MILITARY SPOUSES OF NATIONAL GUARD MEMBERS
"The Wisconsin Veterans Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the multiple state agencies and US Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Hiring Our Heroes, convened for a community engagement event recently to discuss the issue of military spouse unemployment and underemployment in the State of Wisconsin.
The event established the groundwork for Wisconsin to be designated as a Military Spouse Economic Empowerment Zone (MSEEZ) on June 4, 2019, the first such designation in the country focusing on spouses of National Guard and Reserve component service members. The designation brings together employers and business leaders to commit to hiring military spouses in Wisconsin."
