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.
In his regular weekly
conversation with KVCR's Ken Vincent, Inland Empire Economic Partnership
economist John Husing explains the decline of the once-booming manufacturing
sector in the Inland Empire, and how it's been replaced by the growing
shipping, distribution, and logistics industries.
