Need a job? Caltrans is racing to fill 1,100 openings

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- California's transportation department is now looking to fill more than 1,000 job openings.

Caltrans says it's in desperate search for 1,100 new workers after a wave of retirements and an increased workload due to the state's gasoline tax hike. The department needs to fill new positions created by that tax.
