Construction Employment Grows In 31 States

Construction employment increased in 31 states from July to August, an Associated General Contractors analysis found.

A majority of contractors reported they would have added even more workers if they had been able to find them. Construction employment remained flat in Maine, Maryland, and Nevada, and declined in 16 states and D.C.

“Despite an overall rise in construction employment, too many openings remained unfilled due to a lack of qualified workers,” stated Ken Simonson, AGC’s chief economist. “As a result, many projects are being delayed or even canceled.”
