The Texas Workforce Commission is proud to announce the third annual Hiring Red, White and You! statewide hiring fair to take place on November 13, 2014. In cooperation with 28 Workforce Solutions partners, the Hiring Red, White and You! hiring fair connects Texas veterans and their spouses with Texas employers who value the experience, discipline and other exceptional qualities inherent with a military background.
In first 2 years, RWY has connected more than 21,000 veterans with over 3,000 employers and resulted in an estimated 3,500 jobs created.”
There are more than 1.7 million veterans in Texas. With the recent end of America’s nine-year war in Iraq and the current drawdown of U.S. troops in Afghanistan, a mass of unemployed veterans are returning home to the United States. It is estimated that there are 922,000 veterans in Texas who are eligible for work. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the national unemployment rate for all veterans is 6.3 percent. In contrast, for those veterans who served in the military post 9/11, the unemployment rate is 10.0 percent.

The 2014 Hiring Red, White and You Job Fair will be held simultaneously on November 13, 2014 in 28 different cities throughout the state of Texas. For more information on the fair in your area, please contact your local representative.
