Do you have enough skilled labor for your construction project?  If not, we have the answer for you!

The impact of the skilled construction labor shortage has had a sustained and harmful effect on the construction industry since the worldwide recession (2007 - 2011), when approximately 2 million construction workers were made unemployed around the world. This represented a higher drop in global unemployment than for any other industry.
