See their full report at www.agc.org/galleries/ econ/Construction- Materials_Outlook.pdf Note: The new June unemployment numbers for the U.S. construction industry fell 1.4% to 12.8%. As opposed to gaining more employment, analysts say the drop is largely due to workers leaving the industry, causing concern that as construction picks up steam, builders will face a shortage of skilled labor.
