The Verdugo Jobs Center has partnered with Leadership Pasadena to provide leadership classes to veterans in our community under our VEAP grant. FREE to veterans.
Google Data Scientist and former U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Sean O’Keefe pointed out that there are more than 2.5 million businesses in the U.S. that are majority-owned by veterans. This amounts to 9% of all businesses in the U.S. To help veterans find jobs and promote their businesses, Google has launched some useful new tools.
Google has enabled new “Veteran-Led” attribute for businesses that are owned, led or founded by a veteran. This attribute can be added through the Google My Business profiles. And it will appear along with others such as “Outdoor Seating” and “Has Wifi.” . . . . more
Warm wishes for your holiday season and a healthy and happy New Year to all our women veterans. Thank you for your service.

New research shows that the reality of today’s wage gap is more complicated than the figure often bandied about in Washington—“80 cents to a man’s dollar.” In fact, the gap might actually be much worse, yet much simpler to fix, than we assume.
According to a new analysis of historical wage data by the Institute for Women’s Policy Research (IWPR), the oft-cited 20 percent gap, which focuses on short-term earnings, misses the context of women’s lives. When mapped over 15-year periods, the long-term gender earnings gap might widen to as much as 50 percent.
As companies recognize the benefits of hiring military veterans, the question often arises: Will they stay? Replacing an employee who is also a veteran is costly (as with any employee) and often emotional (I feel bad for not retaining someone who served our country).
When it comes to military veteran employees, employers can do more to increase the support network, open communications channels, and demonstrate leadership aligned with values to positively impact retention.
