Construction Jobs Green & Growing in Ramsey County
The COVID-19 pandemic put a halt to construction activities in 2020. As the pandemic impacts recede, construction projects across Minnesota are picking up again, bringing forward a need for qualified workers in various trades industries. Nowhere is that more evident than in Ramsey County, where the need for skilled workers exists across many businesses and industries. As the Outreach Director with McGough Construction, Karin McCabe is familiar with workforce trends. “Minnesota is suffering through a workforce labor challenge,” she said. “There are more construction jobs available than workforce to fill them, so we are certainly looking to get more people into the building trades.”
