In Case You Missed It: “San Bernardino Congressman spends day working at local Amazon Distribution Center”
Yesterday, Rep. Pete Aguilar made the latest stop on his “Job for a Day” Tour of the Inland Empire at the Amazon Fulfillment Center in San Bernardino, where he worked alongside Amazon employees to help pack and sort customer orders and prepare them for distribution. Amazon is one of the region’s largest employers and has over 10,000 employees in the Inland Empire across ten different sites, including roughly 3,500 full-time employees at the facility Rep. Aguilar visited yesterday.
Aguilar remains committed to creating good-paying jobs throughout San Bernardino County, and founded the bipartisan E-Commerce Caucus to help facilitate discussions about the growing e-commerce industry in Congress. His “Job for a Day” tour began nearly a year ago when he worked as a server at Mitla Café in San Bernardino in April of 2017. Since then, he’s worked his way throughout the Inland Empire listening to working people to better understand their concerns and the ways federal policies affect them. This was the seventh stop on Rep. Aguilar’s tour, which will continue throughout 2018.
