WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump has recently touted job numbers among African Americans, veterans and women. Now his administration is turning its attention toward a population that lags far behind in employment: military spouses.

The unemployment rate for military spouses is about 16 percent – quadruple the overall unemployment rate in the U.S., according to estimates from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Experts cite challenges such as frequent moves, often with little notice, as well as barriers created by differences in professional licensing requirements state to state. https://www.stripes.com/news/us/white-house-reaffirms-its-commitment-to-jobs-for-military-spouses-1.535288
