from Equipment World
U.S. construction unemployment tied a record low in October, at 4.5 percent, with recovery from Hurricanes Harvey and Irma and other disasters appearing to lead the jobs increase, according to Associated Builders and Contractors. The last time construction unemployment reached 4.5 percent in October was in 2006, the ABC says. The October 2017 rate was down 1.2 percent from a year ago, with 180,000 more workers employed than in October 2016.
