TEXAS - In 2013, Texas construction firms added 13,500 employees to their payrolls, according to the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC).

The state’s construction industry had 611,100 employees on its collective payroll in December 2013, compared to 597,600 in December 2012 — an increase of 2.3 percent.

In December 2013 alone, contractors added 3,400 jobs — going from 607,700 employees in November 2013, to 611,100 employees in December.

Texas was one of 34 states that added jobs between December 2012 and December 2013. Additionally, it was one of only 17 states that added employees on a monthly basis.

While Texas construction firms do expect some challenges in 2014, as a whole, contractors were more optimistic than their peers were across the United States.
