Labor Jobs are here to Stay
There is no end in sight for the need of labor work in South Florida. The demand for electricians, plumbers, carpenters, painters and roofers are among the shortest in supply for many builders. Buildings are going up so fast, that some feel it’s often difficult to fill the job with laborers.
Labor Department data shows that demand for masonry workers is expected to grow by 15 percent from 2014 to 2024. That’s more than twice the rate of projected overall 7 percent job growth in the same period, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Similarly, demand for electricians is projected to grow 14 percent over that 10-year period. Demand for roofers is expected to grow by 13 percent and for plumbers by 12 percent. Only demand for carpenters nearly matches the overall growth, projected to rise by 6 percent.
We’re excited to confirm that labor work, especially in South Florida, is abundant. If you’re looking for a temporary labor jobs, Skilled Resources knows where to point you.
