According to a model developed by the Associated Builders and Contractors, the construction industry will need to attract nearly 650,000 additional workers on top of the normal hiring pace in 2022 to meet the demand for labor. Studies show that this demand will be long lasting with the number of construction jobs expected to grow 11% between 2016 and 2026.
