The next hurricane-related shortage: Construction workers
from The Wall Street Journal
A severe shortage of construction workers is expected to cause widespread delays and push labor costs sharply higher as Texas begins to rebuild from Hurricane Harvey. The labor squeeze could get worse still if Hurricane Irma slams the Southeastern U.S. this weekend as expected. Already, an estimated 30,000 homes in Houston were destroyed by Harvey, more than this city was expected to build in all of 2017, according to the Greater Houston Builders Association. Tens of thousands more were damaged.
