BURLINGTON, Vt. -

Unemployment is dropping nationwide. However, the jobless rate for post 9-11 veterans is climbing.

The government shutdown delayed September's jobs numbers.

However those that were recently released, show the unemployment rate near 10.1 percent for military veterans. The national unemployment rate stands at 7.2 percent.

As part of the efforts to make hiring veterans a priority, Hiring Our Heroes will host a job fair Thursday, November 7 at the Holiday Inn in South Burlington.
