Workforce Shortage Survey Results Released
On Wednesday, August 31, 2016, AGC Georgia CEO, Mike Dunham, and AGC of America CEO, Steve Sandherr, presented both local and national statistics on workforce needs to media representing three metro-Atlanta television stations and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution
A portion of their message included:
Two-thirds of construction firms report they are having a hard time filling hourly craft positions that represent the bulk of the construction workforce, according to the results of an industry-wide survey released by the Associated General Contractors of America. Association officials said that many firms are changing the way they pay and operate to cope but warned that labor shortages could undermine broader economic growth and called for new workforce measures to improve the pipeline for recruiting and training new craft workers.
