Co-founder Maggie Varona weighs in on the federal hiring freeze and how it affects the military community.
With the stroke of a pen, the new administration created more questions than answers for veterans and military spouses.
In his first week on the job, President Donald Trump signed an executive order calling for an immediate freeze to federal hiring. Specifically, it “imposes a hiring freeze on the executive branch to counter the dramatic expansion of the federal workforce in recent years and the costs attendant to that expansion,” according to the memorandum on the White House website. Officials say some of the more immediate effects may be felt by base patrons, military-affiliated job seekers, and veterans accessing care through the Department of Veterans Affairs.
