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.
