Commercial truck sales and construction feed off each other since the construction industry needs commercial trucks to operate. However, as of late, with the slowing economy, few new housing starts and a drastic lull in the construction industry the pain many construction workers are feeling is being shared by the auto industry as commercial truck sales become sparser.
At the core of this is the crushing situation that so many are in: the world of unemployment. Jobs are being sought by millions of Americans and few are finding them despite gains in the economy. In particular, construction jobs are causing many contractors, subcontractors, carpenters, and others to stretch the usage of commercial trucks further than they would like, as the future of construction jobs is uncertain.
Unemployment is causing the cogs of the economic machine to grind slowly and it doesn’t matter in what industry one works, unemployment is taking its toll on everything. The housing market and the auto industry being hurt by unemployment and until jobs are created the economy is standing on unstable legs.
When people have a secure income they spend more for homes, cars, and merchandise. As a result, if someone is building, repairing, or remodeling a home construction jobs are created and construction jobs bring commercial truck buyers to the auto industry.
Jobs are the bottom line when talking economic recovery. Employment options for all Americans who seek a job are going to be the only thing that will repair economic sectors like the construction and auto industry. With unemployment still a little bit high some people are looking for ways to save money with car sales during holiday weekends. It should come as no surprise that Americans want to find the lowest price but sometimes it takes a little bit of hard work.
