Florida Debt Collectors Support Hiring of Military Veterans and Their Spouses


Debt Collection Attorneys in Florida Hire Veterans
The Florida Collectors Association is now proudly a part of the Hiring our Heroes movement. It is an initiative by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation to support and encourage the hiring of military veterans and spouses.
“We are excited to be involved in an initiative that helps achieve two very important purposes – to honor America’s heroes who have sacrificed so much for us by helping them find work, and to fulfill the vision to pair employers in the industry with qualified veterans,” said Florida Collectors Association President James Welborn.
There are approximately 11 million veterans in the civilian workforce according to data collected nationally, and this number is expected to rise due to the number of veterans returning from other nations.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that employment in the collections industry will grow by nearly 15% between now and 2022 – which will be about 58,000 jobs. In addition, U.S. News & World Report cites that the industry of bill collections as its 11th top job in business in 2014 and 57th out of top 100 overall.

The ACA International and global consulting firm Ernst & Young conducted a national survey that indicates that third-party debt collectors will influence the creation of 15,400 jobs in Florida with a payroll of approximately $480 million. According to Welborn, “Today’s collection agencies do more than just recover consumer debt; they are also valuable job providers, taxpayers, community volunteers and philanthropists.”
