Gas tax creates 1,100 new jobs at #Caltrans

Jobs fairs in Merced and Stockton are part of a push to fill more than 1,100 openings at the California Department of Transportation.

The Sacramento Bee reports that the agency is seeking both blue-color and white-collar employees for road maintenance, engineering and many other tasks. The openings are around the state, with concentrations near Los Angeles, Fresno, Marysville and Oakland.

One reason for the hiring is a wave of retirements by baby-boomers. Another is the increased spending expected from the gasoline tax hike recently signed by Gov. Jerry Brown.
