Construction Employment Up In Over Half of Metro Areas in 2015

Construction employment increased in 190 of 358 of metro areas in 2015, according to an analysis of federal employment data by the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC).

It remained steady in 63 and declined in 105.

“There were nearly twice as many metro areas adding construction jobs in 2015 as there were areas losing jobs,” said Ken Simonson, the association’s chief economist. “Considering current economic trends and our members’ forecasts, many firms should continue hiring workers this year as demand expands.”
