OMAHA (AP) - The Nebraska Department of Labor is sponsoring another job fair for veterans and their spouses in Omaha.
More than 70 employers have registered for next Wednesday's job fair that will be held at the DC Centre in northwest Omaha. It will run from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Federal officials say 9.9 percent of the veterans who served since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks remained unemployed last year. More than 20 percent of young veterans between the ages of 18 and 24 were unemployed last year. More information about the Hiring Our Heroes job fair can be found online at http://dol.nebraska.gov .
