MARKET WATCH: LABOR SHORTAGE, BACKLOGS MAY MASK CONSTRUCTION SLOWDOWN
In his role as a staffing consultant for commercial and heavy industrial workers, Seth Sandler is in the front row of the construction employment rollercoaster.
“We normally see a decline or other recession indicators before many other industries," he told Construction Dive. "We also tend to see when the economy rebounds before many industries as our clients start placing orders again.”
These days, Sandler, CEO of Superior Skilled Trades in Rockledge, Florida, sees no such slowdown, and said the need for skilled tradespeople is at an all-time high.
