Bricklayers and Stonemasons

Employment for bricklayers and stonemasons is predicted to grow much faster than the average for all careers through 2024, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Several factors are fueling this growth. Many workers leave the field each year for less strenuous work, retirement, or other reasons. Population and business growth will create the need for new facilities (such as homes, hospitals, long-term care facilities, and offices) and result in a demand for these skilled workers. More brickmasons will be needed to restore old brick buildings, and all types of stoneworkers will be hired to bring homes up to code in hurricane-prone areas.
