Joining a wave of construction job growth across the country, Alabama had the sixth-best construction job growth over the last year.
Forty states saw an increase in construction jobs between November 2016 and November 2017, according to an analysis of Labor Department data by the Associated General Contractors of America. Two western states led the pack with California and Nevada ranking first and second, both showing more than a 13 percent increase in state construction employment.
