As policy makers and workforce leaders seek to connect people to jobs in our current economy, one industry that continually attracts attention is construction. While construction workers have experienced repeated layoffs in the current downturn, demand for construction skills is expected to rebound as the economy picks up. In addition, new policies designed to promote energy efficiency and support the development or re-development of critical infrastructure have the potential to create significant demand for construction skills.
