BUFFALO, NY - On this Labor Day weekend an estimated 12,000 construction workers are employed at building sites around Buffalo.
As you have probably noticed, construction cranes have popped up all over the skyline. That means all those people in hard hats and work boots are putting in the time to build new structures -- from the medical campus, to Harborcenter, to the new Delaware North building, among other projects.
Labor officials say many of those workers make between $40 and $50 an hour. While some are from out of town, many of the workers are local and spend their money here.
