Construction sector jobs in jeopardy!

The National Construction Association of Sri Lanka (NCSL) says that about 75% of construction workers are at risk of losing their jobs due to the economic crisis in the country.

According to the first President of the National Construction Association of Sri Lanka, M.D. Paul, with the sharp rise in the prices of raw materials such as iron and cement, the construction industry itself has gone into crisis and many constructions have already been halted.

As a result, many jobs in the construction trade have been lost. Those engaged in large scale construction as well as small scale construction activities have all been affected.
