Best vet unemployment rate ever — April brings new record

By: Joshua Axelrod

The job market has never been stronger for the youngest generation of veterans.

The unemployment rate for post-9/11 veterans dropped to a record low of 1.7 percent in April, down significantly from March’s figure of 3.1 percent, according to the most recent Bureau of Labor Statistics employment data.

For context, the previous low for post-9/11 veterans unemployment, a metric that dates back to 2006, was 3.0 percent, recorded in July 2018.
