Construction employs about 26,000 people statewide and accounts for about $3 billion of Montana’s Gross Domestic Product. Despite the influence the construction industry wields in our state, MCA members struggle on a daily basis with attracting new, skilled employees. You can be part of the solution. Whether your company is small, medium, or large, seemingly minor efforts on your part can have a major impact on the career choices of students in your community. The construction industry needs to reach Montanans at a young age to let them know jobs in construction can provide a fulfilling future. If you think about it, we can’t afford NOT to let them know.
