Casey on Senate Vote to Hire Veterans

WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA), Chairman of the Joint Economic Committee, released the following statement on the Senate’s vote on the VOW to Hire Heroes Act:

”I am gratified that the Senate today came together in a bipartisan vote to stand by our nation’s veterans and create jobs.  Unemployment among our veterans is unacceptably high and this bill will give our brave service members additional skills to compete in today’s competitive job market.  Businesses across Pennsylvania who hire a veteran will now get a first class employee and a boost to their bottom line. “
