Veterans unemployment drops again in June

During a month when the national unemployment rate remained stagnant, the jobs picture continued to improve for veterans in June, with unemployment dropping to 6.3 percent compared to 6.6 percent in May.

Post-9/11 veterans also kept up the positive trend, with their unemployment rate falling to 7.2 percent in June, compared to 7.3 percent in May which itself was a drop from 7.5 percent in April. However, female veterans from that generation posted a significantly higher unemployment rate at 8.9 percent, compared to 6.8 percent for their male counterparts.

The national unemployment rate stayed at 7.6 percent, unchanged from April and May, although the economy added about 195,000 jobs in June.
