Cement Masons


Employment for cement masons and concrete finishers is expected to grow much faster than the average for all careers through 2028, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. The number of trained workers is relatively small, and cement masons often leave the profession for less strenuous lines of work. In addition, concrete is expected to increase as an important building material because of its strength, especially in areas with severe weather such as the Gulf Coast. Cement masons will be in demand to help build roads, bridges, buildings, factories, residential structures, subways, shopping malls, and many other structures. Although the productivity of masons will be improved by the introduction of better tools and materials (resulting in the need for fewer workers), cement masons will be needed to replace those who leave the field for retirement or other occupations.
