Associated General Contractors of America (05/18/12)
An analysis by the Associated General Contractors of America shows that construction unemployment varied in April, with 28 states and the District of Columbia seeing declines, three states maintaining employment levels, and 19 states adding jobs. For year on year numbers, North Dakota saw the largest percentage gains in construction employment, and Texas added the largest number of jobs, while Alaska lost the highest percentage, and Florida lost the largest number of positions. For monthly numbers between March and April, Iowa added the largest percentage and Texas the highest numbers, while Alaska lost the largest percentage, and Florida the highest numbers. Officials note that the mixed results reflect public sector declines in investment and growing uncertainty as firms focusing on public projects are hesitant to hire staff.
