COLUMBUS — As scaffolding and cranes line the skies throughout central Ohio, a shortage of construction workers is slowing down work both locally and across the nation.
A recent survey by AGC, the Associated General Contractors of America, found nearly 70% of contractors have a tough time finding qualified craft workers.
“It impacts the schedule on almost every project,” CEO of Brexton Development Tim Galvin said. “We struggle maintaining deadlines because of the shortage,” Galvin said.
