Immigrant Shift

The Changing California Workforce

California has the seventh-largest economy in the world, and immigrants have a long history in building that prosperity. Today, one out of every three working people in California is an immigrant – and their share has grown in recent decades. Our economy is shaped by these workers and entrepreneurs – 6 million people who’ve found a job in the Golden State. In our series “Immigrant Shift,” KQED and The California Report will explore the work they do, the challenges they face and the policies that affect them. How California's immigrant workers actually fare will mean a lot for the state's future.
