A lot has changed in the world of construction in the past decade, and that means the skills needed for construction jobs are changing as well.
Here are some of the key points that are changing for both construction and general employment.
Building in America–Construction jobs are now on the rise.
Construction jobs increased by 12.5 percent in 2017, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), with the construction sector accounting for nearly half of the overall gain.
That was up from a 6.2 percent gain in 2016.
The surge in construction jobs is not due to a lack of skilled workers, but rather, the fact that employers are increasingly focusing on training construction workers, rather than paying them enough to be able to live and work in the field.
The number of workers in construction grew by about 6 percent in 2018, the fastest pace in nearly three decades, according the Bureau.
Construction has also been one of the fastest-growing sectors of the U.S. economy.
In 2018, construction jobs accounted for nearly three-quarters of all new construction jobs, up from just over 30 percent in 2015.
Construction workers have become much more educated and skilled, according a 2017 report by the U,S.
New construction is booming.
The BLS reported that the number of construction jobs added in the first quarter of 2019 increased by nearly 2.3 million to 1.2 million.
That is a significant jump from the number added in February, the same month that President Trump took office.
In 2017, the number was 1.5 million, according it.
While the numbers are growing, the overall workforce is also being squeezed.
Construction is currently at its lowest level since the early 1990s.
The labor force participation rate for construction workers fell to 62.7 percent in March, down from 62.9 percent in the year before that.
More than half of construction workers are part-time or temporary workers.
This is a good thing, because construction is one of only two industries where workers are not counted as full-time, according data from the Bureau, the other being transportation.
Construction is growing more fast than manufacturing, and in many ways it is growing even faster than manufacturing.
Manufacturing has been the fastest growing industry in the U: in 2018 it grew by 13.3 percent, according BLS.
The fastest growth in manufacturing was the construction industry, which grew by nearly 4.6 percent.
In addition, manufacturing has a higher share of jobs that are permanent than construction.
A lot of construction is now being outsourced.
The Bureau of Economic Analysis reported that there are now 1.9 million construction jobs in the United States, up by more than 20 percent from 2016.
In a report released earlier this year, the BLS estimated that by 2024, the U in total will be home to about 30 million construction workers.
Of those, about one-quarter will be employed in construction.
Construction employs roughly 12 percent of all construction jobs worldwide.
With the new infrastructure being built around the country, construction is also growing faster than any other sector.
In fact, it has more construction jobs than all of the sectors combined.
Construction grew by 2.6 million in 2018.
That’s up from 1.6 in 2017.
These are some good news stories for construction, but there are many more.
Workers have fewer job protections than ever.
Since the end of World War II, most workers have been protected from most wage and hour violations by federal laws.
Today, however, the federal government has not been able to protect workers from the effects of automation, robotics, and other technology changes.
Workers are being displaced as technology and globalization take over, and as a result, more workers are facing job insecurity and reduced wages.
Manufacturing workers are being pushed out of the labor force.
Manufacturing is still the fastest growth sector in the economy, and it is likely to continue to be that way.
While manufacturing employs roughly 15 percent of the country’s workforce, it is projected to grow by a further 8.2 percentage points over the next decade, to 21.6 billion people by 2024.
Some construction workers will get laid off.
The latest BLS survey found that construction workers accounted for more than a quarter of all laid-off workers in 2018 (23.3).
In 2018 the industry accounted for about 17.4 million job losses.
That translates to around 17,000 construction workers who will be laid off between now and 2024.
This will hurt the construction workers most in need.
For all of these reasons, construction workers have more to lose.
In order to keep their jobs, many workers are leaving the industry in droves.
As construction jobs become more precarious, construction companies are being forced to cut wages.
In a recent survey, one company reported that its construction workforce was at “low or near zero” during the construction downturn. That
