13 Mar How Will Job-Killing, Interest Rate Hikes, Affect Veteran Unemployment Rates?
According to recent data, veteran unemployment rates have dropped again, bringing much-needed relief to those who have served our country. Yet, there is growing fear that the possibility of job-killing interest rate increases might thwart this advancement.
The Federal Reserve has suggested that it may hike interest rates to curb inflation as the economy recovers from the pandemic. While this may be necessary to ensure long-term stability, it could also make it more difficult for veterans and other job seekers to find work.
To better understand how veterans feel about this issue, we conducted a poll asking the following question: “How concerned are you about the impact of potential interest rate hikes on veteran unemployment rates?”
The results were surprising. While most respondents expressed some level of concern, many also felt optimistic about the job market and their ability to find work. Some even cited the benefits of higher interest rates, such as increased savings and investment opportunities.
Overall, it is clear that there is a complex relationship between interest rates and veteran unemployment rates. As we continue to monitor this issue, we must remember our veterans’ sacrifices and ensure they have access to the opportunities and support they need to succeed.
Today is the day. Now is the moment. Vote for change.
