The United States is seeing new home construction surging due to more people working from home and the lack of inventory in a red-hot housing market. The construction industry was already short of workers before the COVID-19 pandemic, and now businesses need to hire 430,000 workers this year alone to keep up with the demand. Over the next two years, according to Associated Builders and Contractors, over one million workers will be needed to fill open positions.
The construction sector had to close for a few months before the government deemed them essential, but more than a million workers were lost in those short few months. Even after seeing 80 percent of its workforce return, they are still lacking 238,000 workers from pre-pandemic numbers.
