Construction Workers and Jobs
South Dakota sees rise in construction workers
The Associated Press - April 15, 2017

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. - A recent report by the Associated General Contractors of America shows South Dakota is employing more people in construction than ever before.

The Argus Leader  reports the state added about 1,000 construction jobs last month. This is more than any other state except Alaska and Delaware.

Sioux Falls has seen an increase in construction jobs since 2012 because of the city's growth. South Dakota's labor department says construction was the seventh biggest employer of Sioux Falls residents in 2015.

While the overall number of building permits issued within city limits fell last year, their combined valuation of more than $701 million set a new record.

Despite workforce increases, the industry is struggling to keep up with the demand and is experiencing a workforce shortage.
