Construction workers in Oregon have had a hard time finding work the last four years, but the industry is finally making a comeback.  Carey Valdez, with Parr Lumber, says that during their annual housing forecast they heard from economists who all say the supply of homes is less than the demand.  That means the number of building permits should continue to increase and that will drive more construction hiring.  They expect the industry to show steady growth for the next three years.
