As Anniston families celebrate the unofficial end of summer this Labor Day weekend, I’d like to recognize the hard-working men and women of the merit-shop construction industry. America’s merit-shop construction workers, the 86 percent of the industry that chooses not to be affiliated with a labor union, build the hospitals we are born in, the hotels and stadiums that millions of Americans will visit to celebrate the holiday and just about everything else.

In addition, Alabama’s construction industry has a $10 billion impact on the state’s economy, has provided fulfilling careers to Alabamians for generations and, perhaps more than ever, remains a source of excellent career opportunities and prosperity.
