The Inland Empire: Looking for High-Paying Jobs In the third and final story in our series profiling California's Inland Empire, NPR's Scott Horsley reports that this sprawling region east of Los Angeles and north of San Diego has one of the fastest-growing economies in the nation.

Now the question is whether it can climb the economic ladder by attracting high-paying jobs.
