Construction Jobs Decline in April

It’s no wonder that construction jobs were on the decline in April, with all of the incredible weather we had. Between the tornadoes, fires, earthquakes, and every other natural disaster that hit the planet, there really wasn’t much time to build much—let alone much space where things could be built safely.

That said, perhaps May and June will see a rise in such jobs. On average, summer months usually do provide an increase in jobs for those in the construction field, and though all of that damage was terrible, maybe carpenters can pick up some work out of the tragedy.
