from Associated General Contractors of America via For Construction Pros
Forty-three states and the District of Columbia added construction jobs between February 2015 and February 2016 while construction employment increased in 27 states between January and February, according to Associated General Contractors of America analysis of Labor Department data. Association officials said the pullback in energy prices and farm income appeared to be dampening demand for construction in some states while firms in other states continue to expand.
