Report: State Adds 3,000 Construction Jobs

Paced by double-digit growth in central Arkansas, construction jobs are on the rise in Arkansas.

The Associated General Contractors of America announced Tuesday (Feb. 6) the state added 3,000 new jobs from December 2016 to December 2017. That’s a 5% increase to 58,200 workers.

Construction employment increased in 269 out of 358 metro areas tracked by the AGC of America, which said new infrastructure funding would help ensure firms continue to expand their headcount in 2018.

The data is based on analysis of federal employment data.    MORE
