Spokane is 3rd-fastest growing market for construction jobs
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — A Washington state region is the nation's third-fastest growing market for new construction jobs. The Spokesman-Review reported Wednesday that the Associated General Contractors of America says Spokane added 2,600 construction jobs from May 2018 to May 2019. The group's report says the 18% increase placed the city 279 miles (449 kilometers) east of Seattle in the top three percentage gains in construction jobs for U.S. metropolitan areas.
