Weekly Poll (52)


According to a survey released from the Associated General Contractors of America, along with Autodesk, 80% of construction firms reported to struggle with filling hourly craft positions. Since the survey’s findings were released, the AGC has called on the federal government for help. Which, if any, of the federal requests to aid in filling craft positions do you think will be the most useful?


In a recent ruling by the National Labor Relations Board, misclassification of employees as independent contractors no longer violates the National Labor Relations Act. However, some claim that the ruling will further hurt the industry as misclassification already points to lower operational costs and further inconveniences contractors who correctly classify their workers to be competitive against others who don’t. Do you think the rule will help or hurt?
