Architectural engineers are increasingly under fire for being underpaid and undervalued.
A report released Monday from the nonprofit National Association of Contractors and Technology said that in 2016, there were 7,932 engineering jobs available to be filled by the next-generation of workers.
But as recently as 2014, there was a shortage of 4,845 engineering jobs, and there was no shortage of people who were looking for them.
“In some industries, the numbers are worse than that,” said James Cramer, who heads the Association of State and Local Governments (ASLG), which is an association of state governments and the federal government.
“In some cases, the jobs are not filled because people are getting out of engineering.
We’re talking about a situation where people are being pushed out.”
According to the report, the shortage of engineering jobs in the U.S. peaked in 2012, with the unemployment rate for engineering jobs rising to 13.4 percent in February 2016.
The median wage for an engineering engineer is $55,000, while a skilled worker in the same job earns about $68,000.
The number of engineers in the United States has fallen over the past two decades.
In 2004, the average salary was $74,200.
By 2016, it was down to $65,300, according to the ASLG report.
It also said that there were a total of 2,624,800 engineers in American today, down from 2,737,500 in 2006.
It’s estimated that more than half of all engineers in America were employed in 2012.
“The number one reason for this shortage is the fact that people have stopped going to college,” Cramer said.
“And so there’s no one who can fill the gaps.”
A shortage of skilled engineers has also led to the decline of jobs in a number of industries, such as engineering, engineering services, and construction.
And in many areas, there’s a shortage because of automation, according the report.
For example, more than 2 million jobs in transportation are at risk of being eliminated, according ASLg.
Many of those jobs are in transportation, which is the primary manufacturing industry.
In many cities, transportation is the only way to get around, meaning that the number of people driving for the city has grown.
In New York City, the number driving has increased by more than 50 percent over the last decade.
In 2018, there are 1.5 million construction jobs in New York.
And that number is expected to grow by more 25,000 jobs by 2040, according Cramer.
The shortage of engineers is also having an impact on how the economy operates.
While the U,S.
economy has seen robust growth over the years, the unemployment rates for engineering workers have remained relatively stagnant.
The unemployment rate has been 7.6 percent since the recession of 2008.
According to Cramer and others, there is a growing disconnect between the engineering workforce and the economy.
“You have engineers, who are going to work for the U of A, and you have people who don’t know any English, who don
