We all know the past decade hasn’t been the best for job growth. The construction industry, which we do a lot of work in, lost a whopping 2.1 million jobs between 2007 and 2010. But, as our economy begins to move out of the recession many industries, like construction, which took a beating are starting to improve and grow once again.
Those of us that are involved with the construction industry will be happy to hear that—based on activity in the industry—it is beginning to pick up. Over the past four years, the economy has added over 500,000 construction jobs, and spending by construction companies has increased. Working in the construction industry we are seeing an increase of projects once again, a sure sign of an improving economy. In fact, The Labor Department has predicted that by 2022 over 1.6 million construction jobs will be added.
We are excited about this news because it means that construction workers aren’t the only people who are getting busy. Those of us who work with construction companies are also seeing an increase in work. More building materials are being needed, dumpsters are needed to manage construction waste, recycling services are needed to recycle unused building materials and much more.
As more projects continue to be built, more construction jobs will continue to be needed. It is a great time for those that are looking to get into the industry to join, and those that are in the industry to grow their companies.
