    Construction jobs flourish in storm-damaged areas - USATODAY.com

    The prospect has Labor Secretary Elaine Chao concerned about a possible widespread labor shortage as "tens of thousands" of workers race toward construction jobs in the South.

    She tells USA TODAY that demand for some professions needed in rebuilding was already strained amid demand for new housing. A labor shortage could push up wages, she says. "We're going to see a tremendous boom in construction," Chao says.
