Many more San Antonio construction jobs have been added, according to recent labor statistics.

Private sector employment increased by 200,000 jobs from February to March according to the March ADP National Employment Report.

Payrolls for businesses with 49 or fewer employees increased by 86,000 jobs in March, up from February’s downwardly revised 68,000. Employment at companies with 50-499 employees increased by 75,000 jobs, up from February’s 60,000. Employment at large companies — those with 500 or more employees — dropped off to 39,000 which is about half of February’s 77,000. Companies with 500-999 employees added 20,000 jobs, up from 14,000 in February. Companies with over 1,000 employees fell from 63,000 jobs added in February to 18,000 this month.

Goods-producing employment rose by 9,000 jobs in March, up from a downwardly revised 2,000 in February. The construction industry added 17,000 jobs, which was down from February’s 24,000. Meanwhile, manufacturing added 3,000 jobs after losing 9,000 the previous month.

Service-providing employment rose by 191,000 jobs in March, down from 204,000 in February. The ADP National Employment Report indicates that professional/business services contributed 28,000 jobs, down sharply from February’s 51,000. Trade/transportation/utilities grew by 42,000, well above the 24,000 jobs added the previous month. Financial activities added 14,000 jobs which is in line with the average monthly increase in that sector over the past year.

“The Trade, Transportation and Utilities sector had its best month of employment gains since last June,” said Ahu Yildirmaz, VP and head of theADP Research Institute. “Steady employment growth and accelerating wage growth in the workforce appear to be benefitting the Trade segment in particular.”
