Lennar Corp. is in the midst of building hundreds of homes across South Florida, but it is facing a labor shortage.

In response, the company is holding an all-day expo next month at the Signature Grand in Davie to recruit building contractors, according to the Sun-Sentinel.

The homebuilding giant is looking for roofers, electricians, fence painters and construction managers.

Miami-based Lennar is currently building throughout Palm Beach and Broward counties, including more than 700 homes at the Mira Lago development in Parkland. Its other projects are in Davie, Boynton Beach, Lake Worth, West Palm Beach and Jupiter. [Sun-Sentinel] – Christopher Cameron

    There is no labor shortage TRUST ME. There is a difference between a labor shortage and not paying skilled workers what they are worth on fair market value.

      Absolutely agree, Jake. Lennar is notorious for underpaying for both labor AND materials, and it shows in the garbage quality of their cookie cutter product.
