Suzanne Bristol According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics last reported January 2017, there are just under 7 million people employed in building, heavy and civil, and specialty trades in the construction industry. Over 90% of the companies that employ these individuals are categorized under small to mid-size businesses and even in Florida many of the big boys are not based here, but run smaller satellite offices.

As we celebrate this month of Passover and Easter may you reflect on the freedom and opportunities we have here in the US to build our careers with the project and company just the right size for us!
