Skilled workers hope to land a new job in central Wisconsin after a tough time for manufacturing.More >>
A new report says Wisconsin lost more than 10,000 construction jobs in the last year.
The Associated General Contractors of America says the state's construction employment dropped about 11 percent from June 2011 to June 2012. Only Alaska is worse with a 20 percent job loss in the construction industry.
The trade group's chief economist, Ken Simonson, says private sector demand for buildings is up in most states, but single-family home building is spotty and public investments in construction are shrinking.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (http://bit.ly/ME802c ) reports Wisconsin got hit harder than some other states because of its shorter construction season.
