Biden-Harris Infrastructure Program Would Create or Save 15 Million Jobs Over 10 Years

On March 30th, 2021, President Biden announced and outlined his 2 trillion dollar plan to revive the economy. According to Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce (CEW), the majority of this money—$1.5 trillion—will go directly towards infrastructure. The Biden-Harris infrastructure program would also create about 15 million jobs related to infrastructure. That means the job market for construction, material moving, and transportation will be in demand. Read more about the program’s impact on the heavy equipment industry and how you can take advantage of it.

What To Know About the Infrastructure Program

The plan to improve America’s infrastructure will provide an employment opportunity boost across all education levels

  • Many of the jobs in the construction industry will require training and possibly certification
  • Another key finding is that the jobs created by the program will spread across the nation

Majority of Infrastructure-Related Jobs Will Be Material Moving & Transportation Occupations

As found in the report, most of the jobs that the plan would create involve transportation and moving of materials. This includes bulldozer operators, cranes, and more. According to the report, the estimated number of jobs for material transportation and moving is nearly 9 million. But this won’t be concentrated in one part of the country. Infrastructure jobs will be in high demand practically everywhere. Each sector of the country needs roads, bridges, and other structures repaired. Find an education program near you that can set you up for success in the infrastructure industry.

The Program Will Create Jobs at Every Education Level

The Biden-Harris infrastructure program’s job creation will be felt on every level of education. However, 75% of the jobs created by the program will go to those who hold a high school diploma or less. This is a huge opportunity for anyone with little to no postsecondary education. If you have your GED or high school diploma, then you’re already halfway there. All you need to do is find a construction program near you. Get the proper training and certification to start a rewarding career in infrastructure.

Infrastructure-Related Jobs Will Require Education, Training, and Certification
Whether it’s operating a crane, driving a bulldozer, or some other heavy equipment, you’ll need proper safety training. Beyond training, to operate heavy machinery and vehicles, you’ll likely need certification as well. Your best bet is to enter a program that can educate, train, and certify you to work with heavy equipment. It may sound like a long process, but you can get the right training, education, and certification in as little as three weeks. Get started on your education now so you can enter the workforce right as the demand surges.
