Construction Employment Declines in Half of the States Between May and June as Congress Seeks New Way to Pay for Needed Transportation Upgrades
Construction employment declined in 25 states between May and June even as 39 states and the District of Columbia added construction jobs between June 2014 and June 2015, according to an analysis today of Labor Department data by the Associated General Contractors of America. Association officials noted that the monthly construction employment declines come as Congress continues to search for ways to pay for new highway and transit investments.

“While the year-over-year totals remains relatively positive, the monthly construction employment figures are troubling,” said Ken Simonson, the association’s chief economist. “Investing in transportation infrastructure will make it easier for many firms involved in highway and transit construction to add new staff.”

CCA's 2015 Standing Committee Sign-up Sheet
Committee service at CCA is challenging, rewarding and a fun experience that helps you, the Association and our industry. It is at the committee level that policy is drafted and sent to the Board of Directors for consideration and that Association Directors first serve at the committee level.

Committee service provides opportunities to develop leadership skills that will be used on the job and off.  It is an opportunity to express your opinions and offer solutions to the challenges of the construction industry.  Committee service also provides an opportunity to meet and work with others in our industry-and new friendships are almost always developed.
