Sandra will work to ensure that veterans returning home are given credit for the skills they gained during their service, and are given preference in hiring for relevant positions. For example, military medics are exceptionally well qualified to serve the public as EMT’s.
The employment prospects for spouses of military members must also be improved. Currently, they face career disruptions with every transfer. Sandra will decrease bureaucratic licensing barriers so that military spouses can more easily resume work when they move in or out of California.
