Labor Day is a day of tribute to American workers of all professions. For many, it also marks the beginning of the new school year when many students begin thinking about their future career paths. If you’re looking for a rewarding career, here’s a tip: Consider building your future in construction.
Earlier this year, a survey found that construction workers are the happiest employees of any industry.
Why? The satisfaction we find in bettering our communities, the opportunity to obtain on-the-job training needed to advance as a skilled craft worker and the continued growth in our industry make construction a great place to look for a career.
Members of the “merit-shop” construction industry make up 98 percent of the commercial construction workforce in Florida. The industry has provided fulfilling and lucrative careers to hardworking Floridians for generations, and continues to play an important role as a top three economic driver in Florida’s economy.
If you’re looking for a first career or a new one, consider all the merit shop construction industry has to offer. Visit abceastflorida.com for more information.
