This study researches ways to reduce demand and improve supply of skilled construction workers in the U.S.
- The journey-level craft workforce is as educated as the rest of the U.S. population and is somewhat satisfied with their careers.
- The construction workforce is not as diverse as it should be, and the industry is failing to utilize or attract workers such as women and minorities from nontraditional labor markets.
- The industrial construction workforce tends to be characterized as one workforce, when in fact it is actually two with vastly different characteristics.
- The industry is not utilizing any formal, coordinated effort to bridge the gap between the structured and the unstructured management of the workforce.
