The GI Bill contributed to the growth of professional and white-collar jobs by granting US veterans benefits to attend universities.
The Servicemen’s Readjustment Act of 1944, also known as G.I. Bill, was a federal law through which millions of American war veterans from World War II received a series of benefits, including opportunities for university studies and retraining programs.
Thanks to G.I. Bill, war veterans from World War II got considerably greater opportunities than veterans from World War I. The law is also considered by historians and economists to have contributed significantly to the United States as a nation of knowledge during the post-war period and to the long-term economic growth.
