U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) applauded today’s announcement from the Department of Labor (DOL) that employers in Bartlesville, Broken Arrow and Jay, Okla., have been selected as awardees as part of the HIRE Vets Medallion Program.
“As we mark Veterans Day, it is an important reminder of everything our military sacrifices to serve our nation. When men and women leave the Armed Forces, we need to make sure their experiences are transferrable to civilian life with high-paid, skilled jobs. The HIRE Vets Medallion Program honors employers that see the value veterans provide to the workforce and prioritize hiring and retaining them. I’m pleased – but certainly not surprised – that so many Oklahoma companies are being recognized for their commitment to veterans today.”
Established by the Honoring Investments in Recruiting and Employing American Military Veterans Act of 2017 (HIRE Vets Act), the HIRE Vets Medallion Program is the only federal program that recognizes and honors job creators for their investments in recruiting, employing and retaining our nation’s veterans.
