US Congress Considering Hire Heroes Extension Act to Help More Veterans Find Jobs

Paladin Security strongly supports this legislation that extends, streamlines hiring incentives for disabled and unemployed veterans.

The VOW to Hire Heroes Extension Act of 2015 would renew and extend the Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC), which provided employers with tax credits for hiring unemployed or disabled veterans until its expiration in 2014.

Transitioning out of military service and back to the civilian workforce can be daunting, especially for veterans who were disabled overseas. Our veterans have sacrificed for our country, and we owe it to them to help make sure they can transition smoothly back into civilian life. Paladin Security is strongly in support of the proposed extension of this law Hire Heroes Act, which helped thousands of veterans apply their valuable skills to civilian positions. Extending this program will show that our country remains committed to veterans and their families, while helping businesses find good employees and boosting the economy.

Join Paladin Security in supporting this key legislation. Please contact your member of congress today (Link: https://www.congressmerge.com/onlinedb/)  to let them know that you want them to support the VOW to Hire Heroes Extension Act of 2015.

Although reliable global statistics can be difficult to obtain, security experts conservatively estimate that there are up to 30,000 financially motivated kidnappings worldwide, each year.* Kidnap for ransom and extortion continues to be among the fastest growing criminal enterprises in the world.
