    Construction jobs hard to come by this summer - By Tony Pugh, McClatchy Newspapers
    This double whammy has made it a cruel summer for construction workers.

    The industry's July unemployment rate of 8 percent is the highest in 13 years. Across the nation, some 783,000 jobless laborers, carpenters, plumbers, pipefitters and other tradesmen are looking for work wherever they can find it.
