Do you believe laid off military personnel will take many of the available jobs in the U.S?
The cutback in the military worries some job seekers that openings may decrease due to this factor. On tests, military personnel often top the list due to extra points added to score.
I don't think "take" is the right word. "Earn" would be more appropriate. Service members make sacrifices for our country. If one of the benefits for their service is a few extra points on a civil service exam, good on them.
Service members would have already been in the work force competing for jobs anyway if they hadn't joined the service to begin with,
I will always be grateful for the added score as you call it that my husband got for a custodian job at the V.A hospital one summer. It shortened the process and increased the wage. It meant we ate vegetables twice a week.
He worked harder than any one. The nurses didn't realize the tile in the bathroom was white instead of yellow until after he cleaned it one day. Our military doesn't have much to begin with. With so many deployments behind them many of them are wrecks, so to help them out a bit is the least we can do.
That job was a stepping stone to high tech.
My husband is ex-military. The military have made many sacrifices and had many deployments, They have injuries, post traumatic stress disorder, lost limbs and many other inflictions. They deserve breaks. Will these layoffs effect economy/employment?
If those men and women are willing to fight so I do not have to, or my son's do not have to then they deserve the extra points on a test. Many jobs that offer points for the military on tests also offer points for volunteer fire fighters. If you want an edge sometimes you have got to give first.
I think jobs are going to be an issue for a very long time. We live in a global society now and the world is educated, meaning that many people can fit the bill. Today it is more important who you know, and what you have done. So yeah, those willing to give the most (like being in the military) are likely to get the most.
