Concerns Over Skilled Worker Shortage Intensify
There is growing concern about a shortage of skilled tradespeople as the economy improves and more construction projects get underway. "There is a limit to how much overtime workers can put in, and companies will be seeking to expand employment even faster if the volume of projects continues to grow," said Ken Simonson, chief economist of the Associated General Contractors of America. AGC is pushing to create more training programs to recruit more workers.
