Located east of Los Angeles within the San Gabriel Valley, El Monte is a city within Los Angeles County, California. Right after the turn of the century in the year 2000, the residential, commercial and industrial city had a population of about 115,000. In the year 2002, it was ranked the 44th biggest city in California and the 191st largest city within the United States. Historically, it is referred to as "The End of the Santa Fe Trail."

The city of El Monte was at first an island within the center of the San Gabriel Valley. The island is roughly 4 miles wide and 7 miles long. The name El Monte was not officially named after a mountain as some people do think. El Monte literally means 'meadow or marsh' or 'the wooded place'. The city was named by Spanish missionaries and soldiers that stopped here in between 1770 and 1830. The island was situated between two rivers and was richly abundant in alders, wispy willows, cattails, as well as watercress and wild grapefruit. In the 1850's, when the state was organized into more organized townships, the State Legislature named it the El Monte Township. The name didn't stick and rapidly reverted to simply El Monte.

According to the 2009 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report, the leading employers in the city include: Wells Fargo, that hires 1,800 individuals, El Monte Union High School District, that hires 1,742 individuals, Mountain View Elementary School District, which employs 1,007 individuals, Vons, that employs 736 people, Longo Toyota-Lexus, which hires 600 people, City of El Monte, that hires 526 people, M.C. Gill Corporation, Driftwood Dairy, and the Cathay Bank, all of who each employs 250 people.
