Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) September 01, 2013
The website, contractorside.com, calls for members of an industry in decline to assert itself against growing public apathy toward an essential business by exercising its right to exist, to resist ignorance of trades peoples’ existence. The website says that Labor Day is not solely a union celebration, the day celebrates anyone who lives by sweat.
Late statistics from Contractors, Tradesperson Survey, mounted by the contractorside.com, reveal a small business industry in serious trouble in the current economy. Construction industry workers, who occupied more than a quarter of the Gross Domestic Product as few as four years ago, now hold a mere eight per cent. Labor Department figures fail to account for small business construction, but a casual overview shows an industry in fiscal depression.
In an effort to plumb the true state of the construction workers, the contractorside.com launched its Contractor, Tradesperson Survey on August 11, 2013. Response was immediate, traffic so heavy that Google, the questionnaire platform, had difficulty interrupting to produce a "snapshot" so statistical lifts could be made. As of 5:00 pm PDT August 29, the provider forced a pause at 400,000 and initiated data retrieval.
Results were overwhelmingly negative as to the view of the business and as to the personal status of the people who see a way of life that has nearly disappeared. Fully 75% consider a completely different line of work. 55% have taken other or additional work in unskilled jobs to survive financially. 52% are unable to pay their bills. Complete to date results of the survey can be read on the contractorside.com Home Page under Sub Heading: Articles.
The website was developed to give anyone in the construction industry a platform from which to speak, and today this release announces Labor Day pricing of $5.40, temporarily discounted from $10.00 per post. After free registration, any member can view posts as a research tool at no charge.
The Survey results demonstrate excellent reasons to post a comment.
First, the small business industry is rife with non-paying clients who need to be exposed, but contractorside.com is not aimed to drive them out of business the way non-payment drives the trades away by starving them out, it is to modify the business behavior of "difficult" clients. If the poster encloses the person’s e-mail address, contractorside.com automatically sends electronic notification a comment has been filed. Posts can be filed anonymously.
Second, it is common knowledge that dishonest officials have found safe haven in a business where so few small construction business owners communicate due to lack of time or legal funds. The contractorside.com provides a forum where trades-people can register, blow the whistle, on bad inspectors, planners, politicians who impede plying of daily business through unnecessary charges or paperwork.
Third, contractorside.com allows publicly calling out those who have made it their business to inhibit construction essential to a growing economy.
The Labor (Hammer Back) Day 45% less offer begins 12.01 am PDT, and ends 12:00 midnight September 2, 2013. The site is secure, and addresses will not be sold.
Contractors, Tradesperson Survey has been viewed by more than 500,000 news readers in last two weeks, and if these numbers translate to contractorside.com users, it can become a powerful voice in dealing with authority.
The modest comment fee is small enough to be easily affordable, enough to keep out trolls. It is fair.
