A construction worker is paid on average $17.18 an hour, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The BLS says that workers who are paid on a full-time basis and are eligible for overtime pay are the majority of the construction workforce in the United States.
This is according to data compiled by the National Association of Federal Contractors.
BLS data shows that construction workers make up about 15 percent of the total construction workforce, but this number is subject to a significant range of assumptions.
One way to determine how many construction workers there are is to look at how many people are employed in each job group.
For example, in 2017, about 1.7 million construction workers were employed in the construction sector, with the vast majority of them earning between $19.72 and $23.72 an hour.
A worker who is paid $19 and a half an hour would earn $17,800 a year, or $20,400 a year.
Another way to measure construction workers is by comparing wages and salaries across the different types of jobs.
There are two types of construction workers, those who work on a site or construct a house and those who build houses and apartments.
Construction workers who work in the home building industry make a lot more money, on average, than those who are employed on a construction site.
In 2017, construction workers earned $36.43 an hour on average.
That would equate to a yearly salary of $38,000 for those who were employed on construction sites and $38.65 for those employed on site, the BLS data showed.
As of October, 2017, the construction industry employed more than 30.5 million construction jobs.
