Boston Construction Employment Continues Its Boom


For the third month in a row, employment in Greater Boston’s construction trades grew dramatically.

The Boston, Cambridge and Newton metro area added 5,500 construction jobs in March compared with the same month last year, the Boston Business Journal reports, citing a new report by the Associated General Contractors of America.

That’s a 10% increase year-over-year, with the area reaching a total of 62,200 construction trade workers compared to 56,700 a year ago. [BBJ]
