State Net Capitol Journal: Construction Industry Showing Signs of Rebound

Twenty states added construction jobs between November 2011 and November 2012, according to analysis of federal government data by the Associated General Contractors of America. Hawaii picked up the most construction jobs on a percentage basis, 8.4 percent (2,300 jobs), followed by Nebraska, 7.3 percent (3,000 jobs), and Texas, 6.7 percent (37,400 jobs). But states are still well below their pre-recession peaks. California, for instance, is down 400,000 construction jobs (36 percent) from its 2006 peak, while Nevada and Florida - the states with the biggest construction job losses during the recession by percentage - are down 66 percent and 53 percent, respectively.
