Construction Employment Declines in Half of the States
Between May and June as Congress Seeks New Way to Pay for Needed Transportation
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.”

Committee service at CCA is challenging, rewarding and a fun
experience that helps you, the Association and our industry.

your opinions and offer solutions to the challenges of the
construction industry. Committee service also provides

industry-and new friendships are almost always developed.
