NORBORD’S “THANK A FRAMER” CAMPAIGN RECOGNIZES UNSUNG HEROES OF CONSTRUCTION
According to the NAHB, more than 70% of builders reported a
shortage of framers while 78% reported a shortage of sub-contractors able to handle rough carpentry.
With more than 200,000 construction jobs already vacant, the industry needs to train more Americans to
fill these positions.
The HBI supports diversity and provides training for prospective construction professionals, veterans and underserved youth and is celebrating 50 years of skills training in the building industry this year.
To support this campaign, visit www.thankaframer.com and enter the sweepstakes to win great prizes or donate to the HBI. Share the video on social media with the hashtag #ThankAFramer.

A Temporary Band-aid On Labor Shortages August 18, 2017
The portion of builders experiencing labor shortages rose again last month. While long-term workforce development initiatives are underway, many builders have the same question: How or where can we find more laborers now?
A lesser-known option that could help temporarily boost production is the Department of Homeland Security’s H-2B visa program, which issues up to 66,000 temporary worker visas each year.
