Very interesting story out of the Mississippi Business Journal.  It appears high quality construction workers are still in great demand.  Here is the story.

Is construction hiring or firing? | North America > United States from AllBusiness.com:

Many construction leaders are at a loss. The industry is shedding jobs at a record pace. Yet, construction education programs around the state are reporting that their graduates are finding work.

“I’m as perplexed as anyone,” said Desmond Fletcher, a director and associate professor in the School of Construction at the University of Southern Mississippi. “I thought (construction employment) would be up last December.”

You can read the rest, but if shows that Mississippi planroom are still full of project for the higher quality workers.

It is great to see a program that is producing the level of skilled workers needed to keep the construction industry going for the next generation.
