Yesterday, the Independent Contractors and Businesses Association released its annual Wage and Benefit survey, tracking trends in the construction industry. 

It has both good and bad news. In good news, construction  workers can expect an average 5.1 per cent pay bump this year, and another 5.3 per cent next year.

But in bad news, a majority of construction companies think the BC Government is headed in the wrong direction when it comes to managing the economy. Only 8 per cent of companies believe the NDP is on the right track; 51 per cent say they’re on the wrong track.

Chris Gardner is the President of ICBA, and joined Rick in studio to break down the numbers.
