Rep. Aguilar Continues Jobs Tour at the America’s Job Center of California in San Bernardino

On Friday, Rep. Pete Aguilar (CA-31) continued his jobs tour at the America’s Job Center of California in San Bernardino. He joined members of the County of San Bernardino Workforce Investment Board to take a tour of the training facility and discuss job creation in the Inland Empire. 

“I’m glad I had the opportunity to join members of the County of San Bernardino Workforce Investment Board for a tour of the jobs center on Friday afternoon. Since I took office in January, I’ve been meeting with community members to discuss how we can grow the Inland Empire’s economy and create 21st century jobs throughout San Bernardino County,” said Rep. Aguilar. He added,  “Friday’s visit gave me the opportunity to explore our local training programs and resources, which are crucial to investing and strengthening our region’s workforce and getting our economy back on track.”

“Our job seekers and other clients were thrilled to meet Congressman Aguilar,” said Sandy Harmsen, executive director of the County of San Bernardino Workforce Investment Board.  “He took the time to ask many questions and learn about the people we help.  At the county’s three America’s Job Centers, we offer free services to those looking for a job or seeking to build a new career.  These include access to funds for training, a staff person to walk them through the entire process, help with resumes and interview skills, and even funds for tools or supplies needed to complete training.”

Rep. Aguilar has been traveling across San Bernardino County since taking office in January, meeting with small business owners, community leaders, and labor representatives to discuss job creation in the Inland Empire. Friday’s visit was the latest stop on his jobs tour. The County of San Bernardino Workforce Investment Board operates the America’s Job Center of California, with locations in San Bernardino, Rancho Cucamonga, and Victorville. It helps train unemployed job seekers and assists small businesses.
