Dec. 3, 2021

Daniel MacDonald, professor and chair of California State University, San Bernardino’s Department of Economics, joined KVCR's Jonathan Linden to explain more about the Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages report and other economic indicators within the Inland Empire.

Within the Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages was the rate for labor force participation, which MacDonald said looked favorable for the Inland Empire region, while statewide, the report showed a decrease.

“It’s a good, promising trend, and it shows that people out here want to get back to work, they are able to work, and we’re seeing that, again, in the labor force participation is going up in the regionally,” he said. “This is not the necessarily the case in other parts of Southern California, or even parts of California.”
