In April of 2016, Minnesota added 7,400 employment opportunities with great thanks to the development and construction industries. Statistics indicate a solid increase in development projects throughout Minnesota over the past several months. The construction industry is currently booming with this month having the largest increase in production within the past 25 years. These factors attribute to Minnesota’s lowering unemployment rate which is now approximately 3.7%, and a 1.7% increase in job growth over the past year. Specifically in the Minneapolis and St. Paul region, employment growth increased by 1.8%. These trends help to provide a positive outlook for what the future of construction may hold.
