AGC of America continues to hear from many contractors that the labor market has become tighter since AGCA last surveyed its members about the extent of workforce shortages. While it is clear that worker shortages are a growing concern, and in some cases a significant problem, for many contractors, AGCA feels it is important to continue their efforts to better quantify where these shortages are taking place, how severe they are, and what steps firms are taking to both cope with tight labor markets and improve the supply of new, qualified workers.
That is why we are asking you to take a few minutes to complete this workforce survey.
Your responses will help better define the problem to elected and appointed officials, the media, educators, and your peers within the business community. The more people understand the scope, and consequences, of a tight construction labor market, the more likely they are to act on the measures identified in AGCA’s Workforce Development Plan that are designed to make it easier for school systems, local associations, and private firms to establish career and technical education and training programs.
Thank you in advance for your time and support. And please do not hesitate to contact Brian Turmail, our senior executive director for Public Affairs with any questions or comments about the survey. He can be reached at 703-837-5310 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
