New York law gives preference to vets for state temp jobs

January 20 2014

A new New York State law gives military veterans preference for state temporary jobs normally filled by employees from for-profit temporary staffing firms, New York State Sen. Greg Ball’s office announced.

Ball backed the bill, which was recently signed into law.

“We jump through hoops to prepare young men and women to enter into the military, but once they finish their service there is often very little transition back into civilian life,” Ball said in a press release. “Many of our servicemen and women find this transition very difficult and often times can’t fine meaningful employment upon their return.”
