NSNJ Podcast: Helping Our Veterans: Workforce Initiatives

  • image-candidate

As New Start New Jersey celebrates Veterans Day and recognizes the men and women who sacrificed to secure our freedom, we see the convergence of challenges faced by veterans and the plight of the long-term unemployed. New Jersey has one of the highest percentages of long-term-unemployed citizens in the nation, while historically registering one of the highest rates of unemployment among veterans.

Fortunately, several entities are delivering outstanding services to help our veterans get back to work. On this Veterans Day, New Start New Jersey would like to highlight their efforts and review what more we can do together.

Joining New Start New Jersey Chairman and Co-Founder Philip Murphy are two leaders engaged in serving our veterans: Donna Scheel, Director of the U.S. Department of Labor’s Veterans and Employment Training Service program for New Jersey; and Christopher DiMeo, Director of Programs at the New Jersey Building and Construction Trades Council, where he oversees the Helmets to Hardhats initiative.
