Construction Employment Increases and Construction Jobs
The AGC also reported construction employment increases in 30 states between May and June, continuing a stagnation of month-to-month changes in construction employment. Thirty-one states added jobs between April and May after 29 states added jobs between February and March.
“Construction demand remains robust across most states, and contractors continue to add workers when they can find them,” stated chief economist Ken Simonson. “But contractors are struggling to find all the workers they need in many states, as shown the historically high number of job openings at the end of May.”
California, Texas, Georgia, Florida, and Arizona added the most jobs in pure numbers between May and June, while Wyoming, Maine, West Virginia, and Vermont added the highest percentage of construction employment increases. Nevada lost the highest number and largest percentage of construction jobs between May and June.
California and Texas added the most construction jobs in pure numbers during the past 12 months, while West Virginia and Wyoming added the highest percentage of jobs in the past calendar year. Construction employment reached record highs in Colorado, Oregon, and Texas.
