CRISIS is coming to Southern Nevada builders, Many illegals have moved to Canada to earn a living leaving Las Vegas short on workersTuesday, November 21st, 2017
This is what they said a few months ago. If you plan to build it in Las Vegas if it’s a new casino, a freeway, or a stadium for the Raiders and UNLV the construction workers will come, officials believe.
Southern Nevada has seen lots of boom periods in its history. Another boom is now happening across Southern Nevada, with planned, proposed and construction projects underway totaling as much as $15 billion.
Labor Union 184 say “they will absolutely be able to complete the stadium project by the beginning of the 2020 football season”. That’s a big commitment.
And data suggests Nevada does not have enough construction workers to accommodate the timing needs of the stadium along with several existing and future major construction projects, including a Strip mega resort, two highway projects and a manufacturing plant.
Construction industry professionals have said the most acute shortage may occur among professionals and specialists, such as architects and engineers.
