Press Enterprise Columnist Cassie MacDuff and KVCR's Ken Vincent review the week's news, including a growing scandal at Moreno Valley City Hall, and the surprising results of the San Bernardino city election.
The Executive Director of the Inland Empire-based Center for Community Action and Environmental Justice, Penny Newman, talks with KVCR's Ken Vincent about how the Center is marking its 35th Anniversary of advocating for cleaner air and water, and for better wages and working conditions in IE logistics centers. CCAEJ will mark its anniversary at a gala dinner Thursday, Nov. 14th, at the Riverside Municipal Auditorium (info at 951-360-8451).
Penny Newman, Executive Director of the IE-based Center for Community Action and Environmental Justice, offers KVCR's Ken Vincent the flip side of the often-heard argument that the Inland Empire needs more warehouse, shipping and distribution jobs because they provide good pay and working conditions to unskilled, marginally-educated workers.

This morning on KVCR's "Morning Edition," we rebroadcast a segment that was produced and aired last week by our colleague public radio station KCRW in Santa Monica. Warren Olney, host of KCRW's evening public affairs program, "Which Way, L.A.?" invited KCRW reporter Saul Gonzales to take listeners inside Amazon's new fulfillment center in San Bernardino.
