Hire-a-Vet Provides Jobs for 300

Employers participating in 2017’s Maine Hire-A-Vet Campaign hired 296 veterans and military family members during its 100-day initiative, the Maine Department of Labor said Feb. 8.

One-hundred-and-fifty-four employers from all 16 Maine counties participated in the campaign, which launched Labor Day and ended Dec. 13, 2017. The MDOL collected data into January due to the length of hiring processes. The average reported placement wage was $23.16 per hour.
