WASHINGTON (Feb. 16, 2012) -- Alongside the nation's top defense officials, First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden, wife of Vice President Joe Biden, unveiled a new report yesterday that spotlights military spouses' employment challenges and aims to remove barriers for the thousands of spouses with occupational licenses.
Officials are hoping efforts to address military spouses’ ongoing issues with obtaining occupational licenses after a move will help to remove career barriers and reduce an unemployment rate that’s consistently higher than that of their civilian-life counterparts.
