The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that employment of construction laborers and helpers is projected to grow 13 percent from 2014 to 2024, faster than the average for all occupations. Construction is a large field, and turnover is high among laborers. For these reasons, every year there will be jobs available, mainly in connection with large projects, because employers need to replace those workers who have changed jobs or left the labor force. In addition, the level of construction activity is always affected by local economic conditions. Regions that are prosperous will offer better job possibilities for construction laborers than areas where the economy is not expanding. Increased funding to repair and reconstruct the country's infrastructure (roads, bridges, public buildings, water lines, etc.); new construction of schools, factories, office buildings, and power plants; and the rapid growth of green construction will create greater demand for construction laborers.
