Tennessee Construction Jobs – Where Are The Workers?

When discussing current trends in the construction industry, experts agree on one thing: The greatest concern is a shortage in skilled labor to meet the growing demand in construction jobs. The lack of qualified and experienced talent in all trades of the construction industry is one of the biggest problems to-date.

Like many lingering issues in sectors all across the U.S. economy, the deep recession that began in December 2007 is largely to blame for the talent shortage. Unemployment in the construction sector climbed to more than 20% during the downturn. Years went by during the slow recovery, and now, as construction picks up, the remaining workforce is older and nearing retirement, meaning less people to fill up the new construction jobs available.
