Inland Economic Growth and Opportunity: Middle-Class Jobs for a Growing Region
The Inland Economic Growth & Opportunity (IEGO) campaign unites a diverse set of community leaders from the combined metropolitan area of Riverside County and San Bernardino County, a 4.5 million- resident region also known as the “Inland Empire” or “Inland Southern California.” Leaders in the region are steadfast in their commitment to expanding access to full-time jobs that enable working families to make ends meet.
Part of the solution is increasing access to higher education, and efforts are already well underway to increase the level of four-year college attainment in the region. Just as important, the region needs to support the growth of sectors and firms that provide economic mobility via skills training and career pathways, and increase access to those jobs for all residents, reflecting the diversity of the region.
Advancing Opportunity in California’s Inland Empire
This Brookings Institution report considers ways in which the Inland Empire can advance economic opportunity by focusing regional growth strategies on “Opportunity Industries”—the industries that concentrate the region’s good jobs and promising jobs. Good jobs provide middle-class wages and benefits. Promising jobs are entry-level jobs that provide career pathways to good jobs. Although promising jobs do not provide the pay or benefits of a good job, they enable an incumbent worker to reach a good job within 10 years.
