Report: Many Military Spouses JoblessNovember 30, 2017 |
by Bianca Strzalkowski
Spouses of U.S. service members say they continue to face numerous barriers to employment near duty stations, including Onslow County.
A new survey released last week by Blue Star Families – a nonprofit organization supporting military families through resources for careers, deployment, and quality-of-life activities – revealed 55 percent of military spouses are underemployed. Those stationed locally agree with those findings and say, despite extensive education or experience, they cannot find jobs in their industry.
