Those of you who work in the construction industry will want to review this press release which looks at labour market demand for this sector. The Construction Sector Council’s annual forecast of labour market trends predicts that 94,000 new workers will be needed over the next 8 years to keep pace with new projects. Another 162,000¬†people are required to replace retiring workers.
