Thousands of vacant VA jobs costing taxpayers billions
The Veterans Health Administration says it has 41,500 vacant medical staff positions throughout its network of 139 hospitals and clinics. Critics blame the complex hiring process, poor recruitment and low wages compared to the private sector. But according an analysis by USA Today, even a 1 percent increase in job vacancies contributes to more appointments being pushed past a month-long wait.
