Construction industry employment hits 5-year high
from Today's Facility Manager
Construction industry employment reached a five-year high in August as the sector added 20,000 jobs and its unemployment rate fell to 7.7 percent, the lowest rate for August in seven years, according to an analysis by the Associated General Contractors of America. Association officials cautioned, however, that the latest figures reinforce survey results showing many contractors are having a tough time finding enough qualified workers.
