The first real sign of an industry that is poised to grow in the U.S. has been the rise in construction companies.
But the first signs of the boom have been hard to spot in some parts of the country.
“We’re seeing a lot more people going out and getting jobs,” said Michael G. Hagen, a real estate agent in New York City who has seen the uptick in construction jobs and other businesses as construction workers flock to new sites.
Hagen said he expects more construction companies to open soon, and he believes the new jobs will come from new areas.
He expects to see a boom in new construction companies starting to open up, and more and more people will start working for these companies.
“It’s just really, really hot right now,” he said.
In 2016, the number of construction jobs nationwide grew by an average of 2.3% a year, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The number of jobs in construction also rose in every state.
But while the industry is in boom mode, there is a lot of concern among some local officials.
The boom is so hot that some local governments are starting to look at ways to regulate it, said Dan Kosten, a New York state attorney general who is on a task force to study how to regulate the industry.
The New York State Department of Labor is currently working with the New York Association of Realtors to create a blueprint to regulate construction.
But as the boom in construction grows, the state is not making the same kind of effort to regulate existing businesses.
“There are people who are actually getting hurt,” Kostein said.
“It’s not just construction workers that are getting hurt.
It’s the people who make these buildings, who make them safe, who provide the jobs, that are being hurt.”
The boom in real estate is fueling the boomers in the labor force.
As the number and diversity of new construction jobs continues to rise, more and better-paying jobs are coming up for younger people to fill.
“That’s where the boom will come into play, because the people with the skills, the experience and the knowledge are coming out of college,” Kusten said.
But it is not just people in their 20s who are heading to the job market.
Kustein says many young people are going to need a few years to get ready to enter the workforce.
“If you don’t have that training, you’re going to have a difficult time finding the job,” KUSTein added.
