Workers Needed in Sacramento Amid Construction Boom
SACRAMENTO -- The Sacramento area has been experiencing a construction boom. Demand for new homes and retail spaces is skyrocketing as California faces a housing shortage. But developers of new buildings are facing a shortage of a different kind. “We’re projecting a gap and a need for more than 7,000 workers a year in these various (construction) professions,” said Trish Kelly, Managing Director of Valley Vision, a local non-profit focused on creating change in the Sacramento area.
