Veterans' Employment and Education. Hearing on S. 2515, Veterans' Employment and Training Act of 1992 and S. 2647, Veterans' Readjustment Benefits Improvement Act of 1992 before the Committee on Veterans' Affairs. United States Senate, One Hundred Second Congress, Second Session.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. Senate Committee on Veteran's Affairs.
This document records the oral and written testimony of witnesses who testified concerning the Veterans' Employment and Training Act of 1992 and the Veterans' Readjustment Benefits Improvement Act of 1992. It also includes the texts of the bills. Witnesses included representatives of veterans' organizations, disabled veterans' groups, the U.S. Departments of Labor and Veterans' Affairs, a state department of labor, and rehabilitation service agencies. The witness from the Department of Veterans' Affairs cited the following reasons why the department did not support the pending legislation: it did not feel that the legislation would provide long-term help for veterans; previous similar legislation resulted in job training for jobs that did not exist; and it would increase coordination problems between the departments of Veterans' Affairs and Labor. Other witnesses supported the proposed legislation in order to address the problems of the many unemployed veterans and their training needs. (KC)
