Article: Increasing Need for Industry Employees and Qualified Workers

Lack of shop classes and an aging population is contributing to a downfall of qualified workers in the construction industry.  New home construction and improvement are surging, thanks to the lack of inventory in a red-hot housing market and more people working from home. In an industry already short on workers before the pandemic, construction businesses will need to hire 430,000 workers this year and 1 million more over the next two years in order to keep up, according to Associated Builders and Contractors.
