Launched by Martin Lee, a US Navy Veteran that has worked with numerous veteran groups in the recent past is the founder and CEO of VeteransFiverBids.us and VeteransELance.us. He has a heart for Veterans in need of work, because he was once there himself. With unemployment at or around 8.3 percent and 23 million Americans out of work, Martin saw this as a way to help people increase their income, and give back to the Veteran Community that secured our freedoms with their service.
"Veteran unemployment is actually at 12+ percent among veterans serving since the Iraq war began. These heroes come home after a year of deployment, only to face another year of unemployment. Something needs to be done to help them in the meantime, and they have so many skills that can be used in the private sector. I hope this will be a way to bring them the satisfaction of taking care of themselves while they pursue full time employment," said Martin Lee, founder of VeteransFiverBids.us and VeteransELance.us.
Sister site to launch soon
Soon to launch is the website VeteransElance.us, an ambitious project aimed at providing soldiers who are returning from deployment and transitioning to civilian life a lifeline for contract jobs either onsite or online by bidding their services to meet the budget of the job posted by the employer.
