Number of employees in U.S. construction 2000-2017 The construction sector employed almost 10.7 million people in the United States. The construction industry expects to see a stronger emphasis on the digitalization of cities and the improvement of infrastructure through means of data analytics as part of construction operations. However, a strong boom in the construction market due to increased spending has worsened the capacity for employers to fill various job roles. Lower-skilled workers have experienced the largest growth.
How to improve the job shortage?

Many contractors have reported difficulty finding skilled workers in recent years. Generally, construction industry employees are slightly older than the national average and the younger generations seem less enthusiastic about embracing jobs in the industry. A decrease in immigration has also driven the shortage in skilled workers, especially in areas like California and Texas. In order to deal with the shortage of skilled construction workers, employees have begun to offer higher wages, more benefits, and on-the-job training. Many employers have also started to target the employment of female workers.
