Central Illinois – Kroger Supermarkets will be making a big commitment to our veterans.
The company has announced they will hire 120 thousand veterans by the year 2020. It is a move veterans like Gerald Burson are thrilled with, "I think it's a benefit for Kroger and for the veterans because of the leadership abilities that the veterans bring to the table."
Right now about 10 thousand veterans work for Kroger. There is no word from the company on how many veterans will be hired here in central Illinois.
