Construction Worker Unemployment

It's still pretty high - which makes me feel low.

Construction job information obtained from the Wall Street Journal indicates that in Las Vegas, the housing economy was so strong that kids were dropping out to take advantage and are now in a much worse position than those who have completed school and continued on to higher education. WSJ indicates that it is three times harder for the guys who went on to construction jobs to gain employment (after being laid off or losing their job) than their college educated counterparts.
