NEW YORK, NY - JANUARY 15: William Simon, president and CEO of U.S. Wal-Mart Stores Inc, speaks at the National Retail Federation convention at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center on January 15, 2013 in New York City. Simon announced that Wal-Mart, the nation's largest retailer, will hire every military veteran who wants a job, provided he or she has left the service in the previous 12 months and did not receive a dishonorable discharge. The pledge represents the largest hiring commitment in history for veterans, who have a higher unemployment rate than the rest of the U.S. population.
