Re: IBM to hire 2,000 more Veterans

From IBM - as apparently some don't read any of the details.

 

America's largest technology employer, today announced it will hire 2,000 U.S. veterans over the next four years. These positions are part of the company's broader pledge to hire 25,000 U.S. workers through 2020, and many are "new collar jobs" that do not always require a four-year college degree.

 

MATH:   25000 new hires in 3 years and 1500 vets over same time frame - means 6% f-of workforce and oh, whats that "new collar jobs" - a euphemism for low paying jobs.    

 

Just enough to get them ( and family?)  off of Medicaid funding?

 

and because I have your attention, this Information is a reboot of the Dec 13, 2016 article....because in Donald's world repetitive PR is good, even if it did originally occur while President Obama was in office:  http://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/columnist/2016/12/13/we-need-fill-new-collar-jobs-employers-deman...   and his followers just bobble head the news headline - which they do quite well ( the bobbing part) because facts seem not to matter .

Exclusive: IBM to hire 2,000 more veterans, expand tech training schools

 

IBM CEO Ginni Rometty is among the tech leaders meeting Friday with President Trump and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Axios has learned. They'll discuss worker training. And IBM will announce plans to:

 

  • Open 20 more of its P-TECH schools, which let students get a combined high school degree and associate degree in science and technology in as little as four and a half years. There are already 62 of the schools in six U.S. states and Australia. The 20 new schools are all slated to be in the U.S.

 

  • Hire 2,000 U.S. military veterans over the next four years and expand a program that trains and certifies veterans in the use of the type of IBM software often used by law enforcement, cybersecurity and national security agencies.

Why it matters: Rometty has been on Trump's business advisory committee, defending her engagement with Trump as the best way for the company to advance its positions. Announcing plans to hire veterans could generate further approval from a president eager to show he is creating U.S. jobs.
