In recent years, the U.S. has experienced a surge in new construction projects aimed at helping immigrants and their families make it in the country.
The result is that there are more new construction jobs for people who are from countries with high unemployment rates and low educational attainment than in the past, according to the Institute for Local Self-Reliance.
The number of new construction construction jobs in the U., and specifically in Los Angeles, is increasing faster than the overall unemployment rate, according a report by the Center for American Progress.
There are currently nearly 2.3 million new construction workers in the city, the report said.
It said that a higher percentage of these jobs are for lower-wage, lower-skill positions, while the remaining jobs are largely for high-skill, higher-paying jobs.
And yet, a recent report from the California Office of Labor Economics found that the average wage of a construction worker in Los Angels was $17.43 an hour.
For many of these workers, that is less than their federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour, or $22,000.
“When you’re talking about new construction, we’re talking a very low-wage sector of the economy that’s going to pay a lot less than what’s being asked for,” said Michael Waddell, a former Labor Department official who worked on the report.
“You’re talking jobs for the lowest-wage workers, you’re not talking for the highest-wage people, and that’s a problem.”
The new construction industry is booming in the cities that it fills, with many companies employing people from countries like Bangladesh and Vietnam who have high unemployment and high levels of educational attainment.
These countries, according the report, are home to a significant number of illegal immigrants, many of whom have been in the United States for years, without ever being able to gain legal status or become citizens.
The report said the U,S.
now has about 2.5 million construction jobs, which means that there is a significant demand for skilled workers.
The demand is particularly high in the major metropolitan areas, like Los Angeles and San Francisco, where construction companies are growing at double-digit rates.
And according to a recent study by the Pew Research Center, there are now about 1.5 percent of construction workers from Vietnam living in the Los Angeles area, more than double the rate in the rest of the country and far more than the 2 percent rate in most of the rest to the northeast.
Many of these new construction companies rely heavily on immigrants.
Many have been created by the immigration policies that were put in place by President Donald Trump in January 2017, after his inauguration.
The Trump administration has expanded the DACA program, which grants work permits to young immigrants who entered the country illegally as children, and has deported more than 800,000 people.
This has led to increased demand for new construction work, which in turn has pushed up wages and forced workers to move from low-paying low-skill jobs to higher-skilled high-paying ones.
For the construction companies, that has led them to be more aggressive in hiring from low levels of education and low wages.
A study by UC Berkeley’s Center for Labor Economics Research found that construction companies were hiring workers at about the same rates as they were in 2012.
“It’s very difficult to find people who have a bachelor’s degree and are not currently in the workforce,” said Richard Tumulty, the lead author of the report and professor of management studies at UC Berkeley.
“And yet the wages for construction workers are very high, and they’re very competitive in terms of wages and job security.
So it’s a situation that you could say that construction is booming, which is actually what’s happening,” he said.
“The supply of construction labor is actually rising.
You’re hiring a lot more people.”
Many of the companies in Los Angles, especially those based in downtown and South LA, are now recruiting workers from other parts of the city.
A recent report by Zillow found that there were nearly 1,400 vacancies in construction-related occupations in the area, including jobs in office supply, transportation and utilities.
One of the big questions is how these new jobs will translate into a steady stream of new housing construction.
One thing is for sure, construction jobs are not going away, and in fact they are expanding.
“We’re going to see new construction and that is what we need,” said Rana Muhajer, the owner of the Rana and Ira Hanes, LLC, construction company in South LA.
“That’s what we’re trying to do, that’s what is going to make the city and our neighborhoods safer, that will be the most sustainable thing for us.”
And so far, he says, that work has been very good.
“There are a lot of new jobs that have come into our industry and are coming in here,” he added.
“So we are very pleased that we’re making progress
