percent increase. Much of the growth is due to Hurricane Harvey recovery efforts.
• Administrative and support services, (i.e., contract workers, security guards,
janitorial, landscaping, office support), added 22,400 jobs, a 10.8 percent increase.
The sector is benefiting from industry’s relying more heavily on contract workers.
