‘Setting us up to fail’ — VA blasted over unfilled health care positions

‘Setting us up to fail’ — VA blasted over unfilled health care positions | Veterans Affairs and Veterans News from HadIt.com | Scoop.it

At issue are nearly 49,000 empty posts within VA, just under 12 percent of the 420,000-plus jobs there.
