Why is Employment & Income Important?
The employment and income policy area is focused on understanding income levels, poverty, and employment across an array of sectors in the Coachella Valley. As an area with higher rates of poverty, economic opportunity and prosperity shape people's everyday experiences. Although the global and national economy can impact our local economy in ways that we can't control, understanding the changes in jobs and local industries, which neighborhoods have higher concentrations of poverty, and the size and makeup of our local labor force will help us make informed decisions about economic investment for a prosperous and inclusive future in our county.
