Refusal to Hire Veterans

I have observed an alarming trend where numerous government agencies (i.e., Air Force, Army, CBP, DLA, EEOC, EPA, FAA, FDA, Navy, SSA, USBR) are NOT hiring anyone for job position posted over, if there are eligible and qualified veterans. This appears to be done in order to avoid hiring eligible and qualified veterans. In addition, the U.S. OPM and U.S. EEOC condone this procedure as long as no one is selected for the vacancy and the announcement expires.

My latest encounters have been with:

1) the Federal Administration Administration for Job Announcement Number: AGL-FS-10-0041-16641, Aviation Safety Assistant (Office Automation), Pay Plan: FG-0303-6/5, Salary Range: 27,431.00- 30,577.00, Location: US-OH-Cincinnati OH:;and

2) the Air Force for Job Announcement Number: AFPC 28676, Education Services Specialist, Pay Plan: GS1740-09, Salary Range: 46,625.00 – 60, 612.00 USD/year, Location: US-CA-Beale AFB.

However, I am more concerned for my fellow veterans who apply for jobs within government agencies. Therefore, in September 2010 I plan on going Washington, D.C. mainly for my comrades-in-arm to help get some kind of corrective action going. Presently, I am working on getting permits to march, protect, and/or picket in front of EEOC, OPM, and the House and Senate.
