Recently released from war, veterans are having difficulty finding jobs and will mostly likely earn lower wages for years, mostly due to employers’ apprehensions about mental stability and overall skills, a government study says.

“The issue of mental health has turned into a double-edged sword for returning veterans. More publicity has generated more public awareness and federal funding for those who return home different from when they left. However, more publicity, especially stories that perpetuate the ‘Wacko Vet’ myth, has also made some employers more cautious to hire a veteran,” said Joe Davis, spokesman for Veterans of Foreign Wars.
