I have a job to do, and it’s not going to be a glamorous one.
I need to get the job done quickly and cheaply.
So I’m in the middle of a building boom, a construction boom.
And as we head into the first week of the construction season, construction workers are being told to prepare for a very challenging time.
“There are people who are going to have to make a very difficult decision about whether or not they are going back to work,” said Tom Beals, president of the Washington, D.C.-based union, United Steelworkers.
“There’s going to come a time when people are going have to ask themselves whether they are willing to go back to this job.”
The federal government is trying to build a new rail line to connect Portland to Seattle.
And with construction on that line expected to begin next year, workers at some of the biggest construction sites are already getting antsy.
The federal government has been building for years, but with only a few years left until construction starts, many are concerned about the long-term health of the economy.
Construction in Washington has become a major source of income for some of those workers.
But the boom isn’t over yet.
Workers are already being told they have to be ready for a long and challenging season.
“I would say the construction boom will continue for the next couple of years,” said Beals.
“It’s only going to get worse.”
The federal job market is in a bubble, but the construction industry has seen a sharp uptick in construction jobs over the past decade.
Construction is a key source of economic activity for the Washington metropolitan area.
The number of construction jobs has grown in the last five years by 25%, but it’s expected to continue to grow in the next five years.
The Washington economy has added an estimated 16 million jobs over that same time, but it has also become increasingly hard to find a good job.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, construction has become the fastest-growing job in the state.
“We’re seeing a lot of construction companies that are in this boom,” said Jessica Lohr, an economist at the Brookings Institution.
“They are getting a lot more construction companies in this job market, and they are not going back.”
There’s a lot going on for the federal job construction workers in Washington, and that’s the reason they’re getting antsier as construction starts.
The Federal Reserve is preparing to start raising interest rates for the first time in a decade, but construction has been one of the main drivers of that.
The Fed is raising interest on the national debt, which is causing the cost of borrowing to increase.
A number of factors are driving the construction job boom in Washington.
A huge influx of federal construction jobs from China in recent years, and a surge in foreign investment in the Northwest are helping to make Washington one of America’s fastest growing metropolitan areas.
But the construction jobs aren’t all that lucrative.
Many of those jobs are paying less than $10 an hour.
More than 1 million construction workers across the country have jobs in construction.
Some are paid between $10 and $15 an hour, but some are earning as much as $40 an hour or more.
Construction jobs in Washington are also very seasonal.
This is the second time in three years that the construction labor force has dipped below the official unemployment rate of 6%.
The previous time was in July.
With the federal construction job market in a construction bubble, workers are getting antsiers.
The construction industry in Washington is already seeing a spike in construction workers over the last couple of decades.
But the construction sector is not the only job in jeopardy.
Many construction workers also work in restaurants, hotels, and other hospitality services.
And construction is a crucial part of the region’s economy, so it’s been a huge economic driver for many years.
As construction ramps up, the federal and local governments are also ramping up the pace of spending on the infrastructure needed to get those jobs done.
But that could mean the end of the UMWA union, the union that represents the construction workers.
UMWA Local 2152 President Mark Gorton said he and other UMWAs are in talks with the federal building contractors to keep the union together.
Gorton says the construction unions are not a threat to the health of Washington’s economy.
“They’re not going anywhere,” said Gorten.
“The union has its own interests that are at stake here, and those are just as important to us.”
The Washington construction workers union is now being represented by a separate union.
And with the Federal Reserve likely to start hiking interest rates next year as well, workers in the construction union are worried that the job market might get even worse.
“It’s a really important issue that we
