Thirty-eight states added construction jobs between March 2018 and March 2019… new analysis shows. Additionally, reports say 29 of those states added construction jobs in the past 2 months.

The increase is consistent with the month-to-month increase in construction jobs. It’s shows an improvement in the health of the construction industry.

Although construction has added jobs in many states at a higher rate than the private sector in the past year, the record number of job openings at the end of February shows contractors would add even more workers if they could.

Analysts say there is no sign of a let-up in the demand for construction workers.
