New buildings and renovations all around Chicago suggest that the local economy is beginning to improve. Not only does building growth provide space for people to move into new homes and new businesses to open, it also creates jobs for men and women who are seeking work. All around, construction development seems to promote positive change.
One of the downfalls of construction is the potential for construction workers and passers-by to have on-site accidents, resulting in construction injuries. A young man working a construction site was recently killed when he climbed down into a hole to collect lost items and dirt collapsed in and on top of him. It took over an hour to pull him out from beneath the dirt, and the victim was only 20 years old and leaves behind his fiancé and unborn daughter.
