Stimulus Increases Overshadowed By Weak Market: Construction Jobs Down, Infrastructure Bills Stalled

Web Exclusive

“As much as we would hate to see how much worse the construction employment figures would be without the stimulus, the fact is our industry is continuing to suffer even as some areas of the economy have begun to expand,” said Stephen Sandherr, the association’s chief executive officer. “And with regular, long-term infrastructure bills stalled in Congress, it looks like construction workers will have little opportunity to continue rebuilding our economy.”

The AGCA provides PDFs on its website to view construction employment figures by metro area or by rank. It also provides state-by-state fact sheets about the current state of the construction market.
