March 8 — The construction trade continues to be the industry with the highest percentage of workers lacking personal medical insurance, according to a new report from the union-affiliated CPWR-The Center for Construction Research and Training.
In 2014, about 25 percent of workers didn't have personal medical insurance, compared to about 12 percent of workers for all industries combined. Among Hispanic construction workers, 46.3 percent didn't have insurance, while 16.5 percent of white, non-Hispanic workers were uninsured.
The report noted that the percentage of uninsured building trade workers has declined since 2009, when about 35 percent of workers lacked coverage. The report said most of the improvement is because a greater percentage of workers purchased their own insurance through Affordable Care Act programs. The percentage of workers receiving insurance from their employers remained steady from 2009 through 2014 at about 40 percent.
The report is available at http://src.bna.com/c8D. It is based on data from the U.S. Census Bureau and the National Center for Health Statistics.
