Skills shortage driving up construction salaries!


The skills shortage affects the industry in many different ways, some bad and some good. Obviously overall it is not good for the industry that there is a general shortage of skilled workers, however,  it seems that it is positively affecting those currently working in construction...The benefit to existing construction workers is a wage increase! Average pay across the board rose from £42,300 to £45,900, while in London this figure stood at £53,400.
