The Mercury News

Reporter - Economies
 We’re looking to make a critical addition to a talented team at the Bay Area News Group, covering one of the most fascinating economies in the nation. What happens in the Bay Area resonates across the country and around the world — and our news organization has the ambition and ability to tell these stories with the impact they warrant. This reporter will explore the full range of the Bay Area’s economy, one of California’s most powerful regions, to write both breaking news and enterprise stories about  everything from how small businesses are emerging from the pandemic to how the rising cost of living is creating wider gaps and pushing teachers, firefighters and construction workers to live far from the communities they serve. Using data and a diverse source list, they will mine the topics of wages, job creation, economic recovery, wealth and poverty, explaining how those trends are reshaping not just neighborhoods, but entire cities and the future of work.
