Los Angeles has the nation's highest number of homeless veterans. But it's taken years to make space for some of them on a 400 acre Veteran's Administration campus.
ADOT Aims To Hire Veterans
The Arizona Department of Transportation is the second state agency to become involved with the United States Army in a program aimed at hiring veterans as they leave the military. It’s called the PAYS program. ADOT’s Ryan Harding says the agency can be a good fit for vets.
“It’s a great place for these soldiers to come work because we provide a multitude of different job opportunities, including engineering, law enforcement, computer programming, communications,” Harding said.
The only other state agency involved in PAYS is the Department of Public Safety.
