Labor pool constraints intensify in the Inland Empire

• Since the recession, the Inland Empire has seen an influx of people seeking more affordable housing and jobs, which made an impressive comeback bolstered by explosive growth of e-commerce. Blue collar jobs have historically comprised a larger share of the local labor market, compared to the state and country. However, warehouse tenants and developers are facing an increasingly competitive labor pool. E-commerce goliaths continue to add jobs and have put upward pressure on wages within a 5-mile vicinity of a new facility.

• Additionally, an increase in ICE activity and enforcement has left both tenants and their employees in uncertain times.

• With an additional 20 MSF of warehouse space under construction in the Inland Empire,  regional job growth will maintain a healthy clip into 2018.
