There is no accurate way to answer this question, since unfortunately, many of the records from that time have been lost. We do know that it took four years (1933-1937) to build the bridge, and that there were ten major contractors who were involved; they also made use of sub-contractors. Nearly all of the workers came from Bay Area labor unions. Local historians have estimated that several thousand workers were involved in such a massive project, a welcome opportunity during the era of the Great Depression, when jobs were scarce.

there was about 50 people who worked on the Golden Gate Bridge
