Construction Employment Grew in 45 States Year-Over-Year in August

Construction employment grew in 45 states and D.C. year-over-year in August, according to an analysis by the Associated General Contractors of America.

From July to August, 32 states and D.C. added construction employees.

“Construction has been a leading source of employment growth almost universally in the past year,” AGC Chief Economist Ken Simonson said in a statement. “But contractors report needing even more workers as large projects rev up across the country.”

The largest construction employment gains year-over-year came in Texas (21,100 jobs), California (15,600 jobs) and Ohio (11,600 jobs).

The largest construction job losses year-over-year were recorded in Missouri (-2,700), Colorado (-2,500) and North Dakota (-1,000).
