 The Inland Empire rang in the new year with strong economic growth — even outperforming the state's economy. That's according to a new report released Thursday by the UCR School of Business. KVCR's Danielle Fox reports. 


When it comes to job growth, San Bernardino and Riverside counties have done better than the state’s economy for several quarters running.

On Friday, California’s state employment Development Department confirmed that unemployment rate is at a record low of 4.1 percent. KVCR’s Katie Trojano and Rick Dulock report on California's unemployment, and more specifically, the Inland Empire's unemployment rate. 

California employers added about 36,000 non farm payroll jobs in October. However, the effects of this month's wildfires have not yet been calculated to reflect any employment impacts.

California is experiencing a statewide record low unemployment rate.  And the Inland Empire also has one of the lowest jobless rates in recent memory.  More from KVCR's Ken Vincent.

While the unemployment rate across the state went down a slight bit from June to July,. the jobless rate in the Inland Empire took a sharper tick upward last month from the month before.  Still, the unemployment rate this year remains better than this time last year..  More from KVCR's Ken Vincent

This weekend, there will be two opportunities for people looking for work in the Inland Empire to explore careers in the grocery industry, and in the aviation industry.   Ralph's Supermarkets will be interviewing, and several local aviation-related businesses and institutions will be at Riverside Municipal Airport Saturday offering information on careers in aviation-related fields.  KVCR's Ken Vincent has more.

The U.S. Postal Service is putting the word out that it needs to hire a number of temporary employees to work during the holiday period at its Moreno Valley Delivery and Distribution Center.  KVCR's Ken Vincent has more.


The unemployment rate in the Inland Empire - and in the state as a whole - ticked upward for the first time in years.  KVCR's Ken Vincent has more.

Redlands Company To Fill 500 Jobs

Radial, the logistics company formerly known as eBay Enterprises, is set to fill 500 positions in Redlands. KVCR's Rick Dulock has more.

Inland Empire job seekers are in luck. Logistics company Radial is looking to fill 500 positions in their Redlands facility. 

With companies already gearing up for the holiday shopping season, a spokesperson for Radial tells the press enterprise the company sorely needs more employees. Previously known as eBay Enterprise, the warehouse radial operates in Redlands, and helps fulfill orders from the companies' commercial clients. 

A new report finds Southern California in general -- and the Inland Empire in particular -- to be a less than ideal location to find a good job, compared to other metropolitan areas.  KVCR's Matt Guilhem has details.

California's minimum wage moved up to $10 an hour on the first of the year, but advocates for low-wage workers say they'll continue their push for $15 an hour.  KVCR's Matt Guilhem reports the movement for a $15 minimum wage keeps gaining traction and will be prominent in the election later this year.

Inland Empire employers will be interviewing prospective workers for a variety of positions around the region at a big job fair in Montclair tomorrow (Wednesday).  KVCR's Ken Vincent has more in this story.
