Rep. McEachin Named Co-Chair of House Democrats’ Jobs for America Task Force: ‘Reinvesting in Our Returning Heroes Task Force’
WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman A. Donald McEachin (VA-04) announced that he will co-chair the Reinvesting in Our Returning Heroes task force, part of the House Democratic Caucus Jobs program.
“As the co-chair of this task force, I will continue to build on the strengths of our servicemembers and the skillset of our veterans to grow America’s economy and most importantly – create new jobs,” said Congressman Donald McEachin. “I am looking forward to serving in this capacity with my fellow co-chairs to advance legislation and advocate for our bravest Americans to have the best job opportunities when they return to their civilian lives.”
The Jobs for America task forces are a unified effort from the House Democratic Caucus to craft a real legislative agenda that will benefit hardworking Americans and middle-class families. The Reinvesting in Our Returning Heroes Task Force will build on the strengths of our military and the skills of our returning veterans to grow our economy and create new jobs. The focus will include ensuring the talents our veterans developed while serving can transition into the civilian job market and be harnessed for success.
“Our returning heroes deserve our respect and admiration, as well as the opportunity to transition back into their communities knowing they have access to secure, well-paying, and stable jobs that value their military experience,” said House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley (D-NY). “Congressman McEachin, as a member of the House Armed Services Committee and the son of an Army vet, is committed to helping our nation’s veterans and I’m grateful for his leadership on this critical task force.”
The Reinvesting in Our Returning Heroes Task Force is one of five Democratic Caucus Jobs For America Task Forces aimed at identifying opportunities and solutions for American workers in five key areas: Rebuilding America, Jobs With Dignity, Access to Jobs, New Economy, and Reinvesting in Our Returning Heroes. In the coming months, co-chairs of each task force will meet with business and labor leaders, issue experts, and American workers to develop policy goals and solutions that will benefit all Americans. The effort was launched by the House Democratic Caucus.
