Tax breaks to be given for hiring unemployed vets

(CNN) - President Barack Obama has signed legislation giving tax breaks to companies that hire unemployed veterans.

The President said the legislation will help about 850,000 veterans who are currently unemployed and tens of thousands who will be returning from Iraq and Afghanistan in the coming months.

The legislation creates tax breaks for companies that hire jobless veterans and helps provide vets with job training and counseling.
