Construction contractors turn to CLC with confidence to plan and manage all of their labor staffing needs. But you may be wondering what is skilled labor exactly? Let us answer the question.

Skilled Labor vs. Unskilled Labor

Unskilled labor does not require workers to have any special training or skills.  In general, it used to be that unskilled workers had ample opportunities to work in America. Factory and farming jobs were plentiful and unskilled laborers were able to find plenty of work in farming communities and in the big city. Traditionally, unskilled laborers earned a little less than skilled laborers, but toward the end of the 20th century, the pay difference between skilled and non-skilled laborers began to grow. Many jobs today that once required little or no skill to do, are now demanding increased preparation and skill levels, resulting in increased hourly rates and salaries.

Skilled labor in the construction industry specifically refers to labor that requires workers who have specialized training or a learned skill-set to perform the work. These workers can have varied levels of training or education. In many cases, skilled laborers are those who have received enough training to become licensed or certified in a particular trades field. Some examples of skilled laborers are: Industrial electricians, commercial plumbers, heavy equipment operators, concrete finishers and more.

Recruiting the best skilled workers can be a time-consuming and complicated task. For this reason, it is recommended you hire a construction staffing agency to help with all the demands of the hiring process. Using a temporary skilled labor company will allow you to focus on what you do best, helping improve your bottom line in the process.
