Engineering employment numbers mixed in tepid May report

from Engineering News-Record

The industry again added jobs in May, but the 4,000 pickup was well below April's gain, which the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) revised downward to 30,000 from the preliminary increase of 33,000. Among construction sectors, specialty trade contractors had a strong month in May, adding 12,900 jobs. But the heavy and civil engineering segment, which reflects infrastructure work, shed 9,400 positions. Architectural and engineering services, a separate BLS category, picked up 3,600 jobs during the month. more
