Inland Southern California employers took a strong step back toward hiring mode last month, giving the area one of its biggest increases in job opportunities since the start of the economic recovery, a state report released Friday, June 15 found.
There were an estimated 1,162,000 people on payrolls in Riverside and San Bernardino counties in May, the state Employment Development Department reported. That represents a 1.3 percent gain from May 2011 and stops a two-month period where it appeared that job creation was slipping.
