In Case You Missed It: Rep. Aguilar Vows to Move the Inland Empire Economy Forward
Last week, Rep. Pete Aguilar (CA-31) marked his first 100 days in office by releasing a Jobs Plan – his strategy to create jobs throughout the Inland Empire and get the local economy back on track. The Jobs Plan release follows his Jobs Tour, where Rep. Aguilar met with local businesses, employees, elected officials, labor stakeholders and others about the best ways to create jobs in the Inland Empire. Following his announcement, Rep. Aguilar spoke on the House floor to share his proposal, and this week he authored an editorial where he detailed his plan to get the Inland Empire economy back on the road to recovery. “Changes Needed for Middle Class to Thrive” is Rep. Aguilar’s most recent editorial since he took office on January 6th.
Rep. Aguilar’s plan addresses four main areas to put Inland Empire residents back to work and get the local economy moving again. They include: support for small businesses to grow and expand, create 21st century jobs in emerging sectors such as renewable energy and biotechnology, connect job seekers with employers and job training programs, and invest in infrastructure to support business growth.
