Disney launches program to help vets find jobs
The Walt Disney Company has launched a new program to help returning veterans find jobs.
CEO Bob Iger announced an initiative called "Heroes Work Here" at the annual shareholders meeting in Kansas City on Tuesday. He says Disney will provide at least 1,000 job and career opportunities for returning service members over the next three years and launch a public awareness campaign to convince other businesses to follow suit.
Disney owns ABC7 News.
