President Obama recently announced a plan to add jobs for veterans in the health care industry, according to a report from Bloomberg.
The President is urging health care centers nationwide to create roughly 8,000 jobs for veterans returning from duty over the next three years. He also laid out a plan to increase programs that help military medics become physician’s assistants. They will be given priority grants to attend colleges and universities to prepare for this type of job.
“Veterans shouldn’t have to fight for a job once they’ve come home from the fight overseas,” said Matt Flavin, director of the White House Veterans.
President Obama’s veterans initiative is part of his efforts to pressure legislators to proceed with his jobs plan.
