A new crisis in the construction sector is brewing as the construction construction industry has been hit with an unexpected downturn.
This is particularly true for construction workers, who are now facing a new recession after the economic downturn of 2016.
But that is not the whole story.
What’s happening to construction workersIn the first three months of 2017, there were a total of 3,971 construction workers in the UK, according to the Construction Industry Association (CIA).
In that time, the number of construction workers has dropped from 1,826 in the year ending March 2016 to just 1,527 in 2017.
That means the construction workforce in the US has also seen a dip in workers, dropping from 1.6 million in the previous year to 1.3 million in 2017, which is a drop of roughly 20%.
In the UK alone, the total number of workers in construction increased from 1 million in March 2016, to 1,928 in 2017 and 2,818 in 2018.
The UK is a key manufacturing base for the construction trade, with a total number production of 1.4 million, according the CIA.
In the US, construction workers have seen a decline in the number in the last three years, from 4.1 million in 2015 to just 2.1 in 2017; meanwhile, construction jobs are still booming in Canada, with the total job growth for construction sector workers in Canada going up by almost 20%.
The UK’s construction industry is also seeing an increase in new entrants into the industry, with just 0.4% of the UK’s total workforce entering the construction field between 2015 and 2017, according a recent survey by the CPA.
In contrast, the US is seeing a rise in the share of the workforce in construction occupations, with more than half of all construction workers aged between 25 and 64.
In 2018, construction accounted for about 28% of US construction jobs.
In the UK this figure was just 11%, while in Canada it was just 9%.
So what’s causing the downturn?
In addition to the construction workers facing new jobs and a decline of their jobs, there are a number of reasons why construction is in trouble.
One of the main factors is the construction of roads, bridges, roads and infrastructure, as well as buildings and other types of structures.
There are also new technology, such as 3D printing, that are replacing traditional methods of building.
Another problem is the increase in supply chain costs.
According to a study by the BIS, the cost of a road can go up by more than 20% in a given year, with this going for major projects, such the construction and infrastructure industry, as the UK construction industry experienced.
The impact of this on workersThe construction industry faces a number other problems.
In 2018, there was a significant increase in the cost to construct a road in the United States, up from $20.50 per mile (20,000 to $40 per mile) in 2016, according US Bankruptcy Court data.
Construction firms also saw an increase of their own costs in 2017 with the construction boom of the past few years hitting.
According to the BIC, the average cost of building a road has risen by more $3,600 to $28,600 in the past 12 months, compared to a total increase of just $1,500 in the same time period in 2016.
The cost of the building of a bridge has also risen by about $4,300 to $15,800 in the period.
Construction workers in Britain also face other challenges.
As well as the rising costs, there is a shortage of skilled workers, with fewer than 5,000 people working in the country as of May 2017, the CIO says.
And it is estimated that the shortage of qualified workers will result in a loss of more than 3,000 jobs in the sector.
The rise in demandFor workers in Europe, there has also been a rise of demand for workers.
In May 2017 the BSI reported that demand for construction jobs in Germany had increased by about 40%, while demand for jobs in France increased by 20%.
Construction in the European Union also saw a rise, with demand for both construction and related trades rising by nearly 25%.
According to a report by the Association of British Chambers of Commerce (ABBC), the construction business in Britain is still booming, with overall construction employment at around 2.3m in the first quarter of 2017.
But this figure has been on the decline in recent years, as demand for these types of jobs has been reduced by the recession.
For those looking to find work, there can be a range of companies to choose from, including:The Construction Industry Agency, which represents construction firms, says it sees an increasing demand for skilled workers and the development of technologies to improve labour productivity.
“We are seeing an increasing number of people working for contractors, for example,” the agency’s CEO Simon Davies told the BBC
