Only 23 states and the District of Columbia added construction jobs between September and October while construction employment increased in 35 states between October 2015 and October 2016, according to analysis of Labor Department data released by the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC). Association officials said declining public-sector investments in infrastructure and other public projects were undermining construction employment growth in many parts of the country.
