Solving the Labor Shortage With Higher Education

Construction labor has long faced a generational challenge in finding skilled workers. But the second half of 2022 is adding even more obstacles: inflation, federal spending, aging workforce, and continued labor shortages—all driving up costs, wages, and the overall price of building anything in the United States.

The crisis has prompted the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) officials to call on government officials to let employers sponsor more foreign-born workers and support more career and technical education.

We know we are in volatile times, where supply chain issues and labor shortages are frustrating. It’s time to battle the current labor shortage with higher education!
