With the economy in the state it is in, jobs can be tough to find, even more so for returning veterans. Activision has decided to step up and has pledged $1 million dollars to set up a foundation to help these brave men and women find good employment and readjust after coming home.
"The joblessness rate that [veterans] should have should be far less than the national average, not more," said Activision Blizzard chief executive Bobby Kotick. "How do you expect people to actually join the military if when they leave the military they can't integrate back into the free market they're supposed to be protecting?"
Former Army General. James Marks is among those retired military leaders that Activision has recruited for help with this campaign, and he had this to say:
"The fact that industry can complement the efforts of the government to really provide assistance is wonderful," Marks said. "It doesn't replace it, it's a partnership in an effort to provide a full canvas of options."
