Stimulus Construction Jobs 

That’s according to the head of the Maine chapter of the Associated General Contractors of America.

John O’Dea says Maine stands to get at least $317,000,000 in new construction investments under the plan.

He estimates that’ll translate into nearly 4,000 construction jobs.

O’Dea says those jobs are badly needed. 3,200 construction workers have lost their jobs in Maine in the past year.
