Stone Installers Discuss Their Jobs – Warning Strong Language

Posted on 26 February 2018 by cradmin

EDITOR’S WARNING: THIS VIDEO CONTAINS STRONG LANGUAGE NOT SUITABLE FOR ALL VIEWERS! Ever wanted to know what some fabricators/installers honestly think about their jobs? Well, here’s a video that may provide some insight. These two stone installers, who apparently work in Virginia, decided to record their drive to an installation site and post it on YouTube. From how they talk, they aren’t very happy with their work, they don’t care much for their customers and they feel overworked and underpaid.

While we don’t agree with the sentiments nor approve of the language and didn’t have to post this video, we felt it makes a strong statement about the countertop industry, and is something that should be addressed, particularly when the pool of available workers is nearing a 20-year low. We are not sure what this says about the company these men work for (which is not identified in the video), but their advice to any young people watching is to “get a job at McDonald’s” instead of being a stone fabricator and/or installer. In the midst of a market that is faring well and facing a growing labor shortage, this doesn’t bode well for the future of the industry.

We would be quite interested in hearing how you are dealing with the lack of available workers to fill your needs and how you keep your staff happy with their positions.

Once again, be warned they use what can be deemed as vulgar language in their discussion, so if you are offended by that, DO NOT WATCH THIS VIDEO.
