Military spouses are educated, strong, and philanthropic. Yet sadly, they are experiencing severe unemployment and under-employment. The Military Spouses Employment Partnerships articulates the issue best: “The challenges of multiple moves and deployments often translate into resilience, adaptability and unparalleled work ethic. Roughly 85 percent have some college, and a full 25 percent have a bachelor’s degree or higher. Military spouses volunteer at three times the national average — often taking leadership roles in their charitable endeavors. "Unfortunately, most employers have not come to appreciate the value of these at home heroes. Unemployment is a staggering 26 percent among military spouses, according to Defense Department figures. There is a 42 percent wage gap across professions between military spouses and their civilian counterparts. Underemployment among military spouses, who are more educated on average than their peers, remains rampant. These are dismal numbers even in today’s struggling economy. "This is not just the right thing to do — it is right for business. Military spouses are a huge asset to this nation’s workforce." The good news is one organization is trying to do something about it. Specialists on Call is looking for military spouses! Specialists on Call (SOC), provides emergency telemedicine solutions to over 200 acute care hospitals across the United States. SOC addresses the specialty physician shortage by delivering highly trained specialists directly to patients’ bedsides at their critical times of need.
