The statewide Hiring Red, White & You! hiring event connects Texas veterans and their spouses with Texas employers that value the experience, discipline, and other exceptional qualities inherent in a military background.
Hiring Red, White & You! is a joint initiative supported by all 28 Texas Workforce Solutions development boards, the Texas Workforce Commission, the Office of the Governor, the Texas Medical Center and the Texas Veterans Commission.
There are nearly 1.7 million veterans throughout Texas, of which 967,000 are working or actively seeking work, according to estimates from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. More than 79,500 of those veterans call the Rural Capital Area home.
By hiring more veterans and spouse candidates, employers can reduce turnover, maintain a more stable workforce over time, and may be eligible to earn up to $9,600 in federal tax credits through the Work Opportunity Tax Credit program.
