Aguilar Jobs Fair Draws Hundreds of Inland Empire Job Seekers
Today, Rep. Pete Aguilar hosted a Holiday Jobs Fair to connect job seekers with local businesses and organizations for employment opportunities. Rep. Aguilar, staff members and representatives from Inland Empire companies were on hand to meet with hundreds of San Bernardino County residents looking for work.
“I’m grateful to all the businesses and organizations that joined us to help make this event possible,” said Rep. Aguilar. He continued, “Directly connecting residents with job opportunities is critical to getting our economy back on track. I’m glad today was helpful for families in our community and I look forward to continuing efforts both on the ground and in Congress to help put people back to work.”
Rep. Aguilar has made job creation a top priority since taking office earlier this year. He’s introduced two bills that focus on creating jobs, the On-the-Job Training Tax Credit Act and the Small Business Jobs Act, which incentivize local businesses to train and hire more employees and provide a tax break to geographically targeted businesses in areas with high unemployment rates. Both of Aguilar’s bills and the jobs fair were proposed in his Jobs Plan, which was released in April of this year. It can be read in full here.
