The world likes to divide military spouses into exactly two types: employed and unemployed. Once they have us divided, the experts like to reveal the rate of spouse unemployment, which is always a huge and shocking number to civilians. The whole exercise is designed to light a fire under employers and get them to tap into that natural resource, baby!
Which is super nice, but not that helpful. When you are the military spouse who is unemployed and looking for a job, those stats can make you feel like a wild animal trapped in a turtleneck and desperately seeking a way out.
