For many veterans, it can be challenging to find careers they love after their service has ended. In 2020 alone, there were over 581,000 unemployed United States veterans, which is 581,000 too many if you ask ABC® Supply Co. Inc. The company has long supported those who are serving or have served in our nation’s military and is on a mission to provide more veterans with career opportunities within the ABC Supply family.
The company’s military commitment took another step forward when ABC Supply became the 1,000th partner of the United States Army’s Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS) Program. This program is a strategic partnership between the United States Army and a cross section of corporations, companies, and public sector agencies.
The goal of PaYS is to reconnect America with its Army and give youth an opportunity to serve their country while they prepare for their future. PaYS partners guarantee soldiers five job interviews and possible employment after the Army. The partnership between the United States Army and ABC Supply supports the Veterans Opportunity to Work Act. To date, there are 5.9 million jobs available to soldiers through PaYS. Since 2017, more than 1,500 veterans have joined ABC Supply’s family, and 19 active military members are on the team.
