Construction Jobs on the Rise

August 4, 2015

The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts 478,000 jobs will open up by 2022 for laborers and carpenters, and specialty trades are likely to see increases as well, reports The Philadelphia Inquirer.

Approximately 40 percent of construction employment was lost during the recession forcing many workers out of the construction industry, but now that it's becoming one of the fastest-growing sectors, some firms are struggling to find enough qualified labor, according to The Inquirer.
