Despite the heat Uber is taking with their recent arrival in Nevada, they are doing something good in an attempt to leave a positive stamp on the state: they’re giving military veterans an opportunity to partner with the company to supplement their income and create their own businesses.
With the current unemployment rate for military veterans (and their spouses, surprisingly) of all ages hovering between 21 percent and 25 percent, it’s more important than ever that we get our military heroes back to work.
The ride-sharing company is partnering with Hiring Our Heroes to offer outreach and incentives as they work to bring more than 50,000 military veterans and their spouses from all over the state onboard as Uber drivers over the next 18 months.
If you or someone you know is a veteran or the spouse of a veteran, send them to UberMilitary for more information and application instructions.
