On the eve of Veterans Day, Jim Cramer held his annual “Salute to Service” special on “Bad money. “
The CNBC personality acted for a moment in his stock comment on Tuesday to highlight public corporations he admires for going above and beyond hiring Americans who have served in the military.
Veterans are highly skilled and known for their strong work ethic. However, after returning from active service, they often find it difficult to find work among the civilian population.
“We have millions of veterans, some of the most educated people in the world, but they often have trouble finding work when they get home,” said Cramer.
“So tonight we’re celebrating the companies that are making every effort to hire vets. We’ll recognize them so people will understand that we admire them, not just because it’s the right thing, but you know what because it is a good deal. “
WalmartHe found that this was almost three times that. The food giant has added 265,000 veterans to its payroll since 2013. The company has set itself the goal of hiring more than 250,000 former military personnel from this year.
Campbell soup is another company that has focused on hiring military veterinarians. Mark Clouse, the grocer’s chief executive officer, is a former army captain and appeared on Mad Money Tuesday to mark his company’s efforts in partnership with Hirepurpose, an organization that helps veterans find a job, and American Corporate Partners, a mentor -Program to help announce veterans transition from service to civilian working life.
“I can tell you that there are so many attributes of military veterans and what they can bring to the American company,” said Clouse. “It really is an extraordinary source of talent out there.”
Cramer also shared three resources that viewers can use to get more information on what companies are doing to hire veterans, including lists posted on Military.com, by doing Military times and Forbes Magazine.
“Every year we do this Veterans Day Show, I am impressed with the success of these companies that employ many veterinarians,” said Cramer. “Time and again, companies that hire tons of veterans tend to be very well-run and have good long-term prospects.”
“I recommend them all.”
