Employment projections released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) in February expect total U.S. employment will rise 14.3 percent in this decade. Construction jobs, however, are not expected to recover their pre-2007 levels by 2020.

Regions expected to experience the greatest job growth in the decade are spread throughout the country. Some of the hottest areas of growth include the Phoenix-Las Vegas region; California’s Central Valley; the Denver and Colorado Springs, Colo., areas; the San Antonio-Dallas corridor; and Washington, D.C.
