NYCEDA’s “Veteran Employment Effects Based Operation” also known as:“OPERATION: VEEBO”
Using social media as the matchmaker, NYCEDA plans to implement a Veteran employment “Effects Based Operation” otherwise known as EBO to assist veterans seeking jobs and employers wanting to hire a veteran.
An Effects Based Operation (EBO) – a term coined by the US Air Force, seeks to understand the causal linkages between events, actions and results. For example, the effect of feeding a hungry child could be accomplished by handing the child a meal, directing the child or guardian to a soup kitchen or by providing the guardian a job as a means to earn sufficient ongoing income to afford daily meals for themselves and their children. NYCEDA plans to use EBO concepts such as combining military (Veterans Affairs agency services) and non-military methods (job placement community program services) with computer technology (social media) to achieve a particular effect: “Veteran Employment Using Social Media Networking”. NYCEDA believes that our veterans are vital to our national economic force and should have a swift and direct route to employment to ensure that their expertise and training can be utilized in the best possible manner for our nation – without a great deal of time lost, cost and effort expended.
Under the law, the “Returning Heroes Tax Credit,” businesses that hire veterans will receive a $2,400 per veteran tax credit for veterans unemployed for four weeks or longer and a $5,600 per veteran credit for hiring veterans unemployed for more than six months.
Under the “Wounded Warriors Tax Credit,” businesses could get up to $9,600 per disabled veteran hired if the veteran was unemployed longer than six months and has a service-related injury. Obama said that 850,000 veterans are unemployed in American. Read more…
