The State of California Employment Development Department (EDD) has released job statistics reporting that there's been a 10% rise in employment rates since 2014 in Temecula, California. This equates to more than 5,300 jobs created since the first quarter of that year. The reports also state that jobs were at an all-time high for the second quarter of last year with 54,231 total jobs within the city.
The City experiences steady employment growth as economic development continues to be a mainstay in its effort to create jobs locally, enhance local economy and improve the quality of life of its residents.
Mayor Matt Rahn commented, "I'm pleased to see Temecula continues to attract reputable companies and developers; we embrace new businesses coming into the community." Rahn added, "The City continues to strive to enhance job opportunities and create an ecosystem that strengthens our local economy."
EDD also reports a total increase of 16% in employment rates since first quarter 2014 in Southwest Riverside County – accounting for over 11,900 additional jobs in the region. "We continue to work toward building a community that can live, work and play here in town by focusing our efforts on business attraction, retention and creating jobs," says Kisa Puckett, Office of Economic Development.
There will be a plethora of hotels, restaurants, and retail being chased after for job opportunities, along with the new Mt. San Jacinto College campus, and capitalizing on growing industries, the City of Temecula is expecting a continuous growth as more job opportunities become available and new developments come about.
