The National Housing Conference (NHC) released its annual Paycheck to Paycheck report, Paycheck to Paycheck: Building Homes Affordable to Home Builders, focusing this year on the rental and homeownership affordability challenges facing workers in the construction industry. The report specifically examines housing affordability for workers in five job categories within the construction industry, including: carpenters; electricians; heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) mechanics; maintenance workers; and plumbers. NHC has also updated its national database on housing costs and incomes across 259 metropolitan areas in 81 different occupations.
