We continue to hear from many of you that the labor market remains tight. While it is clear that worker shortages are in some cases a significant problem for many contractors, we feel it is important to continue our 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 the following workforce survey that AGCA and Autodesk have prepared:
Your responses will help us 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 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, the AGC of America vice president for public affairs and strategic initiatives, with any questions or comments about the survey. He can be reached at 703-837-5310 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
