  • Report: Military spouse unemployment may be costing U.S. up to $1 billion

    Type of content: News

    Unemployment and underemployment of military spouses not only affects individual families, but it’s costing the U.S. economy — to the tune of about $710 million to $1 billion a year, according to a new report.

For too long, though, another source of talent has been largely overlooked, despite producing many of America’s most talented technology professionals.
