At least 33 US companies vow to hire Afghan refugees


At least 33 major companies in the United States have vowed to hire and train Afghan refugees arriving in the country following the U.S. military withdrawal from Afghanistan, according to the Tent Partnership for Refugees.

Approximately 60,000 people evacuated from Afghanistan since Aug. 17 have arrived in the U.S., many having little to no resources after leaving their country — now controlled by the militant Taliban . Several companies, including Facebook, Amazon, UPS, and Pfizer, have partnered with the Tent Coalition for Refugees to help find work for thousands of displaced refugees.

“I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: The moment a refugee gets a job, it’s the moment they stop being a refugee,” said Hamdi Ulukaya, the founder of the coalition and CEO of food company Chobani.
