In Lincoln, Nebraska, a wide range of construction projects are taking place and giving job seekers plenty of opportunities to build careers. According to the Lincoln Journal Star, the development of a $450-million arena currently supports roughly 13,000 jobs, and more positions could be added to the local economy as the project approaches completion. 

Ken Simonson, chief economist for the Associated General Contractors of America, noted that the recent construction industry growth in Nebraska is part of an ongoing trend for the state. U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics data shows that Nebraska has the largest percentage of construction sector employees among all states, and the segment is likely to keep local professionals busy in the foreseeable future. 

KLAS-TV reports that the construction of the SLS Las Vegas hotel and casino is creating both temporary and permanent construction jobs for industry specialists. In fact, the project is spurring economic growth among local businesses as well.

"It's more construction jobs, more money going into the payroll taxes [and] property taxes, so [the project can] be a benefit to the community as a whole," Las Vegas business owner Justin Michaels told the news source.
