With construction permits down, Connecticut builders wonder about 2018

In Connecticut, construction industry employment dropped sharply since June, according to estimates by the state Department of Labor. As of September, builders employed 56,200 people in Connecticut, DOL determined, down nearly 9 percent from last April that represented the sector’s peak employment in 2017. Since then, construction employment has dropped five months running, and is now at the lowest level since July 2014.
