The State of Construction Employment

Updated: Aug 13, 2018

According to an article published by the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA), construction employment has been steadily increasing this summer with increases in both June and July. This upturn in employment is even higher than the national rate, according to chief economist Ken Simonson.

What is attracting all these workers? The average hourly rate for the construction industry in July was just shy of $30.00 an hour at $29.86. This substantial hourly rate could explain the over 300,000 construction jobs added over the past year alone. On top of that, the construction industry’s unemployment rate is lower than the national unemployment rate and is sitting at a record low of 3.4 percent since 2000.

Roof Rescue is proud to be a part of the construction and roofing business.
