Industry Update
Rep. Judy Chu, Democratic congresswoman from California, introduced a bill that, if passed, would direct OSHA to create a standard for heat-related injuries and illnesses. Chu bill, H.R. 3668, was introduced July 10 and has been referred to the House Committee on Education and Labor.
New analysis from the AGC of America confirms that construction firms are having to pay higher wages to attract skilled workers from a shrinking labor pool. Average hourly earnings in construction — a measure of all wages and salaries —increased 3.2% over the year to $30.73, 10% higher than the private-sector average of $27.90, the association said.
If it seems that certain areas of the United States are benefiting more than others from the country's current construction boom, it's because they are, according to a new report from research firm GlobalData.
