"Well hopefully it'll mean more jobs and get some of the people off the streets that are homeless," says David Gerfen, who lives in Redding. "That's one of our biggest problems in Redding. I'd like to see more jobs."
According to a California jobs report, unemployment rate in Shasta County was 4.2% in December of 2019, up 3% from Novemeber in 2019.
