Women make-up 10.9% of the U.S. Construction workforce according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor statistics. Most women are in sales, office administration and management type of roles; and with a known shortage of construction workers in the U.S., there are plenty of paths to other positions open to women.
Permit Us Now staff will be participating in a WIC Breakfast and Learn event hosted by Walsh in Houston, Texas. Also, PermitUsNow is a recognized leader in the construction industry that writes helpful articles in Subcontractors USA and permitusnow.com on building permitting.
