April 6, 2012

An analysis by AGC showed that 30 states added construction jobs between February 2011 and February 2012, two were stable, and 18 shed jobs.


Though the rising number of states experiencing an increase in construction employment is encouraging, “[T]he industry is still struggling in too many states to declare that construction is in full recovery,” said Ken Simonson, chief economist for AGC. also reported on construction employment’s separate track from general employment numbers.
