Report: Grounds Maintenance Profession Growing in Government


Hiring rates for grounds maintenance workers in the government sector expects to grow through 2018, according to a story at www.americancityandcounty.com

Economic Modeling Specialists International (EMSI), a CareerBuilder company, said the number of landscaping and groundskeeping workers in the government in the U.S. totaled 130,565 in 2014. EMSI projects the number will rise to more than 135,000 by 2018 — a 4 percent growth.

“The government industry in general is projected to see about 2.4 percent employment growth, which means that the growth of groundskeepers is on track with the rest of the government sector,” says Laura Pizzo, senior technical writer at EMSI. For more grounds management stories click here.
