LET'S FIX THE PROBLEM
Underemployment and unemployment rates for military spouses are significantly higher than civilians’ and have been for a long time. One of the barriers preventing this problem from being acknowledged, understood, and addressed earlier was a lack of data to supporting.
The Wisconsin Veterans Chamber of Commerce (WVCC) Military Spouse Pledge was established to lower these rates by partnering with corporations and hiring entities. The partnership is a visible way for companies to show their commitment to supporting military spouses with regards to employment. This year, the partners inducted signed this commitment.
