This is not a business reporter job, but this reporter knows what motivates business. This job is about helping people understand the business and economic trends that shape public policy, that influence the cost of living, that reveal the jobs being created and those that are going away. CalMatters explains the major state issues in California and all of it — education, environment, healthcare, transportation, justice — is shaped by the state’s business and economic trends. California is also a high-cost, high wage state and one of its central debates is about maintaining those high wages and lowering those high costs.
– Experience at covering the economy or business issues
– An understanding of economic policy, especially in California
