Additionally, the construction industry’s unemployment rate fell to 11.3 percent. According to an analysis, the industry’s unemployment declines have happened as a result of the construction industry decline, and as has continued to shrink, since August 2011, more than 214,000 workers have left the industry.
IFG President and Chief Executive Officer George Shapiro said, “Due to the housing sector, we are seeing a small uptake in construction employment, which means construction industry is heading in the right direction, but by no means recovered. This is why The Interface Financial Group’s construction factoring is a much needed strategy to keep the industry on track.”
During the first half of the year 2012, according to the U.S. Census Bureau of the Department of Commerce, construction spending was at about 387.1 billion, up 1.5 percent for the same period in 2011.
