Many came home to find that they were replaced in their old occupations and that, in general, jobs were in short supply. As a result, unemployment among veterans was triple that of civilians in 1947. Moreover, housing was hard to find leaving many veterans without a stable home. Furthermore, while there was a baby boom after the war, there was also a divorce boom. Marital relations suffered after the war as veterans silently struggled with their mental health.
This finding also show that there is a need to make more efforts in making military skills in line with civilian vocations. In a poll conducted in 2010 by the Society of Human Resources Management found that 60% of employers felt that veterans often had difficulty translating military experiences into civilian job experiences (Faurer, Rogers-Brodersen, & Bailie, 2014). In contrast, the literature review also found that there is a perceived notion of discrimination from some employers, who did not show complete trust in hiring veterans for reasons such as PTSD. A study by The George W. Bush Institute in Dallas, Texas (XXXX), on issues affecting veterans who have served since 9/11 confirms this issue. They found that employers sometimes cite
Although there has been a decline in the number of homeless Veterans since this announcement, the current glide path suggests they will miss the goal unless services are expanded and more success is achieved. In fact, in 2012, VA served more than 240,000 Veterans who were homeless or at risk of becoming homeless—21 percent more than the year before. These numbers suggest the VA is becoming more effective and is serving more of the demographic in need, but it also paints an unacceptable picture of nearly a quarter million Veterans who were faced with life on the streets that year. More disturbing than this is the fact the percentage of homeless female Veterans with children increases each year, despite current VA
Try to imagine America twenty years from now. The streets are full of homeless people begging for money, as they do not have jobs, because they could not afford higher education. Diseases spread all over the country, because the cure is trapped in the mind of someone who cannot afford higher education. The economy is at an all-time low, because the people who went to college are living in debt, and offer no spending capacity. “Tuition is raising faster than the rate of inflation” (Watson).
There is an increasing amount of soldiers getting discharged. And if the soldier don’t get an honorable discharge the soldier don’t get all of his/hers benefits. He would, how ever, have got some benefits of being a veteran. Because there are more soldiers getting discharged, they will not have enough money to survive . The cost of groceries one week is about $289 that means that on a soldier's salary and if he doesn't get the discounts for a retired vet, or a vet who had been honorably discharged.
Two years after the homestead strike came the depression, which left thousands of people jobless and in debt. The homestead strike can be linked to the failure of the creation of a working class in America, but made the federal government aware of the need to intervene in labor disputes. Presently in America, there a limited unions and people tend to work as
After the war, President Truman faced the monumental task of shifting America from war to peace. The more than 12 million men still in the military in 1945 wanted to return to their families and jobs, and demobilization occurred rapidly. While some veterans found civilian life difficult, others used GI Bill benefits to build or buy homes, start small businesses, and go to college. Most veterans went into the labor force, taking jobs from more than 2 million women workers. The government dismantled wartime agencies that regulated industry and labor and set price controls, which sparked immediate inflation.
Evidence of this was when war factories shut down because war supplies were no longer needed now that the war had ended, this left many people unemployed (Canadian War Museum). This shows that World War I was a means of income and jobs for many people and as it came to an end so did their career and wealth. Similarly, after the soldiers returned from war, they had no jobs. This was the result of Canada’s fragile economy, which had difficulty employing and supporting demobilized soldiers and left many people jobless(Reilly, Skikavich). The nation as a whole was upset with the government, as they believed that it was the government’s duty to find a concrete solution for this problem (Reilly, Skikavich).
The military has suffered many shortages in the past few years. Budget cuts has caused shortage of parts and equipment to the military. Also, the military has lost many including a boats and airplanes. The U.S Air Force has lost so many equipment /parts that most airplanes could not go into battle. So, Michael Flynn a Defense Intelligence Agency 2012-2014 stated, “We cut the military to its lowest levels, yet we are facing the world that is the most complex environment we have faced since at least the end of World War II”.
Malaysia Airline is operating in a mature and cyclical product market as there are a lot of airlines competing with him for a share of the market and the air tickets are actually seasonal goods which the demands are fluctuating. A chronically loss-making enterprise, Malaysia Airlines saw it finances turn completely unsustainable in 2014. It posted a second-quarter net loss of MYR305.7million (USD95.1million) exacerbated by the presumed missile strike of MH17 and the loss of MH370 tragedies. The incidents claimed the lives of 524 passengers and crewmembers and led to decision to furlough 30 percent of the airline’s workforce and remove several routes from its long-haul network in favor of Asian regional
A high-rate of Americans living without health insurance coverage in one of richest countries is a major social issue facing the United States. Sered Fernandopulle and Ebrary research showed that there are over 40 million uninsured Americans that are falling through the cracks of the health care system. The question why have already been answered. Now the other question is what does it means for society as a whole when an extremely high-rate of adults and children suffer due to inadequate and inaccessible medical care. Uninsured Americans’ lives are greatly being impacted, by not having no health insurance, according to interviews with 120 uninsured men and women and dozens of medical providers, policymakers, and advocates from around the nation.
Lack of Government Support For Affected Veterans According to the article, “Government 's PTSD Treatment for Veterans, Lacking”, “They account for more than 75% of the roughly half a million VA patients receiving treatment for PTSD,” (Zarembo). Many veterans still continue to wait for their treatments, creating issues in their home life and even causing them to commit suicide. The 25% of the patients who are not treated suffer, this is where the government should come to play to help those people by providing more care and supporting the costs. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder should be better treated and better supported by the government to veterans because of the amount of soldiers waiting for treatment, lack of effectiveness in treatment,
Therefore, the lack of regulation cause thousands of people to have a routine exploit in poor working conditions in factories for little pay. American business hired woman and children for lower wages than men which was uncommon at the time. Under these circumstances children worked up to twenty hours a day. Many where exhausted and were killed or injured on the job. Early attempts by labor unions to create a mandatory minimum wage were ruled unconstitutional by the
The lack of jobs and economic opportunity mean that, depending on the reservation, a lot of adults on reservations are unemployed. “Among American Indians who are employed, many are earning below poverty wages. The overall percentage of American Indians living below the federal poverty line is 28.2%. The disparity for American Indians living below poverty on the reservations is even greater, reaching 38% to 63% in our service area” (Aid). Often, the heads of household are required to leave the reservation to look for work, and grandparents or older
With only a margin of jobs accessible to adults in the transition from college to their dream occupation, it leaves many unemployed students with a huge sum of debt. Debt has become a situation where it is reduced into a smidgen of a problem due to the glamorization of the once free money. Students and adults alike, are unable to see beyond the available money. And when they have collected debt, it seems as if they have become immobilized at a dead end. Scurlock makes a moving documentary as he focuses on the effects of debt that occur to students.
