Mike’s Got Something to Say About the Military
You want to know what gets Mike riled? It is finding out that the unemployment rate for returning GI’s is nearly three times that of the national average. It is criminal, especially when the reason has nothing to do with training or experience. In fact, returning GI’s are more than qualified to work, especially in the trades.
The problem has to do with little to no “reverse assimilation” into the private sector, and a huge disconnect with respect to the expectations of the average HR Manager, who often sees these candidates as members of an “alien culture.”
Listen to Mike discuss a conversation he had with a retired Major General from The US Marine Corps named Mike Myatt. General Myatt currently oversees The Marine Corps Memorial in San Francisco, and is best known for liberating Kuwait back in 1991.
