Veterans Employed by Pierce County

Why is this a priority?

Pierce County is home to Joint Base Lewis-McChord, one of 12 joint bases worldwide. Of the nearly 90,000 veterans that call Pierce County home, close to half of them are in the labor force. Veterans offer a variety of valuable skills and experience to employers in Pierce County. 

How are we doing?

Pierce County is committed to providing employment opportunities to veterans in our community. We have a goal to nearly double the number of veterans employed by Pierce County government. 
Data is self-reported by employees. Pierce County recently underwent an effort to update the dataset, resulting in more accurate reporting in 2019.
