Builders in our city are being affected by a shortage of skilled workers.

This shortage is not only affecting Laredo but our state as well.

According to a new survey by the associated general contractors of America, 78 percent of builders in Texas say they are having difficulty finding skilled workers.

The Laredo builders association attributes this shortage too many factors, one of them being the immigration policy, which they say is affecting the ability to hire skilled immigrants.

Also, the lack of interest that young adults have in skill labor careers.

The Laredo Builders Association hopes that the future generations, look for a career in construction as well.
