Nassau and Suffolk counties gained about 6,800 construction jobs between November 2017 and November 2018, according to the Associated General Contractors of America. That roughly 8 percent increase brings the total number of people employed in construction in both counties up to 88,600. The nearby New York City region saw a 4 percent rise in construction employment, gaining about 5,700 jobs over the past year. The Orange-Rockland-Westchester area saw slower growth with only a 1 percent increase from 200 more construction jobs during the same period, according to the AGC. The Arlington, Virginia-based trade association found that across the country, construction employment expanded in 265 metropolitan areas (with Phoenix, Dallas and Orlando being the strongest markets for job growth), declined in 45 and stayed the same in 48 others over the past year. [LIBN]
