Daily Dose: RAND Study Finds Answer to Hiring Vets

Today in the Washington Post, Steve Vogel reports on a RAND study that found federal tax credit programs encouraging employers to hire disabled veterans are proving effective.

The study released Thursday found that the tax credit increased employment among disabled veterans by two percentage points in 2007 and 2008, or approximately 32,000 jobs each year.

Congress has since enacted two more measures providing tax credits for hiring veterans, including a second expansion of the WOTC in 2009 and the VOW to Hire Heroes Act passed in November.

What do you think of these measures?

Should these measures be the main focus of legislation helping Vets, or should it be shifted to something else?

Vets – has this legislation helped you get a job?
