Construction Employment Grows in 45 States Year-Over-Year in July

Construction employment grew in 45 states and D.C. in July compared with July 2022, according to an analysis by the Associated General Contractors of America.

From June to July, 27 states added construction workers.

“Construction job gains were nearly ubiquitous over the past year,” stated Ken Simonson, AGC’s chief economist. “While barely half the states added construction employees in July, that is due to the sector’s ultra-low unemployment rate. There is still plenty of demand, as shown by near-record construction job openings.”
