Interesting Industry Information
How is the Overall Workforce?
The U.S. Department of Labor - Bureau of Labor Statistics publishes a "M onthly Jobs Report" soon after the beginning of each month. Each report describes the previous month's employment situation, based on data such as the number of jobs that were added to the economy and the unemployment rate.  The US economy added 156,000 jobs last month and the unemployment rate increased slightly to 4.7%.  For more information, check out the BLS' interactive graphs.

According to a recent  AGC of America articleConstruction employment totaled 6,699,000 in December, a decrease of 3,000 from the previous month, but 1.5% more than a year ago. Looking at employment by state, (via the results of an AGC survey) 32 states reported job gains in 2016, a decrease from 2015 (with 44 states reporting increases). Despite the decrease, the consensus is more optimistic than in the previous year, with nearly 3/4 of the respondents voicing their intent to hire more workers in 2017. As explained by Construction Dive, jobs are being created, but there are labor shortages due to skills gaps.  
What's In Store for the Construction Industry 
Throughout 2017
The architecture, engineering and construction industries are expected to see growth in 2017. Economists predict a growth in construction spending, but also note an overwhelming sense of uncertainty. Some of the trends and topics of uncertainty include: the Trump administration, safety on job sites, labor shortages, new technology and workforce management trends.
