SAN BERNARDINO - (INT) - Only six of California’s 58 counties can boast a labor pool of more than 1 million. San Bernardino County is one of them, having eclipsed that mark four months in a row.
According to the latest data from the California Employment Development Department (EDD), the county’s labor force reached a record 1,018,000 in February, and is now 30,000 ahead of where it was a year earlier.
When Riverside County is added, the Inland Empire’s labor force exceeds 2-million.
