Employment in Construction Sector Up Since 2011

The latest Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey (JOLTS) from the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows open, unfilled jobs in the residential construction sector have made small gains since June. In fact, the number of job gains in this sector reached the 300,000 mark since cycle lows in 2011, according to a new report from the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB).
