Construction Jobs Hit 5-Year High

One of the latest reports on job growth in the construction sector is welcome news. Payroll processing company ADP says as the housing market continues to improve, construction jobs are being added. According to ADP, the construction industry saw 36,000 new jobs last month, the biggest monthly gain since February, 2006. Matthew Rocco writes on that roughly 6.1 million people are now employed in construction. The industry last topped that number in April 2009. “Construction activity largely moves in tandem with the housing market, which has benefited from low interest rates and moderate job growth,” explains Rocco.
