Sacramento Bee hires Park to cover economic inequity
The Sacramento Bee has hired reporter Jeong Park, who will focus on wages, unions and inequality with an eye toward how state policies affect working people.
A story on its website states, “Park joins The Bee after two years at the Orange County Register, where he reported on various cities in Orange County, as well as the area’s Asian American community. He wrote about issues ranging from the lack of affordable housing in Orange County to how the area’s immigrant organizations are helping their community during the coronavirus pandemic.
“Before working at the Register, Park was a reporter at the Journal and Courier in Lafayette, Ind. He also interned at the Register, covering the area’s Asian American community as part of a program sponsored by the Asian American Journalists Association.
“Park is a first-generation immigrant from South Korea, coming to the United States when he was 11. He has called California home since then, except for a few months he spent in the Midwest.”
