    Skilled trades expect effects of recession to reach construction industry next year - by Kevin Eigelbach, Louisville Business First, KY
    Nationally, the numbers for construction worker employment don’t look good, and they haven’t looked good for a while.

    According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, construction employment fell by 49,000 in October, the most recent month for which figures were available.

    Since September 2006, construction employment has fallen by 663,000 jobs, most of them in residential construction, the bureau reported.
