The South Florida construction industry is roaring back. Now, many contractors are having a hard time finding people to do all the work that needs to be done.

"I am a contractor and now it is hard for me to find laborers and carpenters for all the work that I have and that needs to be done," said Andrew Hopewell.

"This is the best job situation I have seen in a longtime. I remember times when all I could get was a day here or day there. Now I people are competing to hire me. I have a lot of work opportunities in construction," said Jose Gonzalez.

"The jobs are back. I working 60 hours as week as a carpenter," said Joe Braswell.

"I just hope the market stay strong. I getting lots of work in the construction industry," said Todd Cicero.
