Construction

The construction industry has three major components: construction of buildings; road, highway, or other infrastructure; and specialty trades in both residential and commercial construction. OED focuses on reducing economic inequities in the construction industry that provides living-wage careers. Four out of five construction industry employees in King County are male, and 73 percent are white. OED is working to change this by equipping Black, Indigenous, other communities of color, and women with education and training for industry employment.
