The number of construction jobs across Long Island increased in May compared to the same time last year, according to a report by Associated General Contractors of America. Long Island Business News reported that about 85,900 people were employed by the construction industry locally in May — that’s about 4,400 more than in May 2017. Neighbors like New York City and Orange-Rockland-Westchester counties all saw five percent bumps as well. These local trends match nationwide upswings with 263 metro areas reporting growth. [LIBN]
