Unemployment up Among Veterans

Santa Clarita — Recent months have seen job growth in most sectors, but a staggering number of veterans are still unable to find work once they return from duty. “Now that the election is over, there are virtually no jobs for us,” said one veteran on the condition of anonymity, “from June to November, we had steady jobs as props in political campaigns. Photo-shoots, TV ads, hell we even found ourselves being paid to sit in the audience at a Steve Knight debate. Not any more.”

Many veterans earn most of their yearly wages from being used as political props. With the election season over, and no popular wars to fight, many local veterans are finding themselves without options. “Sure, it was great to visit Texas for a bit and yell at some Mexicans, but I have a mortgage to pay, you know? We need these jobs to get by.”
