The U.S. construction industry continues to recover from the worst recession in a generation, and employment has risen to its highest point since 2008. But it’s hardly business as usual.
It’s no secret that many workers left the construction industry as the downturn intensified, changing career paths or retiring altogether. This, coupled with shrinking training programs, has left the industry in a major bind. As the demand for construction remains high, contractors are struggling to find qualified skilled workers. Many have started partnering with educators and employment and government agencies to identify creative ways to solve the skilled labor shortage.
