TEXAS - The Associated General Contractors of America has joined the national Hiring Our Heroes program as part of a construction industry effort to hire at least 100,000 veterans in five years.
Association chief executive officer Stephen E. Sandherr said today that many construction companies report having a hard time identifying military personnel who are ready to leave active duty and enter the private labor force.
The action comes as many construction companies report having difficulty finding skilled workers and identifying military personnel who are ready to leave active duty and enter the private labor force.

The partnership with Hiring Our Heroes will be a key part of Associated General Contractors’ Workforce Development Plan.
