With the exception of a few leading questions, great survey Aaron!

I got banged that the 1159 members of this site deserve to be first...I posted the three days ago and 27 people so far....
So I pose this question...an anonymous survey to express your views on the industry information can be compiled from those completing the services.
why will no one participate in something that will effect change???
This has to be the strangest industry I have ever worked in...
I do survey's in the glazing industry and I get 5-6 thousand responses in 72 hours...
Trying to get anyone to participate in this industry is like trying to pull teeth with no anesthesia...
It really is sad to see that the majority of the people in the industry would rather complain than try to make change that is long overdue....

Coffee time...

I think most realize they don't have the money or power to affect the change and that they are changing back into the private sector for more money. This alone will cause the industry to start paying well again.

Most contractors are sick of the constant circle jerking the nats and regionals are pulling on them. The private sector is pumping up quick. Better paying. Less waiting. No uploading. No E&O required. Hello weekends and 8 hours of sleep. Survey not needed.

So what don't people understand that standing together is the first step.
Placing information in a repository for statistical purposes...
I hear everyone bitch but only about 1% will stand up and be counted....

Aaron trying to put out the guilt trip on people only works on employees and weak minded people. You're dealing with business owners. Owners who operate in different ways. We've got some here who think $20 cuts is profitable and they can make it work. Do you think they care about you, me and the rest of the industry? Most people care only about themselves and their vision. Thus the sad state of this "industry".

I support what you're doing and see many things the same way you do. Lets face it. Not everyone else does. Some people work scared. Some people are wanting to make all that they can until they find something else. They're not focused on the overall good of PPI.

Like my grandmother told me once, "don't ask God to guide you if you're too lazy to move your feet".

You need to sell everyone on why you think your way/path is better than theirs. It's hard to see 3 days ahead in this industry with the constant changes that occur daily. Best of luck.

I took both surveys within 24 hours so I feel justified in my 2 cents. I thought the first one was really good. I closed the 2nd one without answering the first time I opened it. I feel like several of your questions were written looking for justification for talking points you had already chosen. On reflection, I did go back. And complete it.
I respect what you are doing. It seems like you are successful and have a deep background in business and PP. I'm afraid that too many people on this forum are struggling to grow their business and dont have the time or energy left to worry about others. I am one of those people. I have lines I won t cross out of respect for myself and the industry but have no time for organizing. Short sighted it may be, but it is a fact.
In the meantime, good luck and I will answer all of your surveys.

Thanks...information is vital when looking to develop policy to affect change anywhere...Most know whom I deal with in providing the information...parties I deal with and do this leg work for happen to be in Washington Dc this week... While I may beat a drum the fact remain that until everyone says stop...and that would be considered "organized" on the level we are dealing with...even if 50% of the industry said stop...
On the flip side the volume issues is about to fall completely in this this industry...so maybe this will all be moot????
In regards to guilt tripping anyone...just stating facts...

I believe in refusing work at insulting pay levels. I refuse to work for any regional. I am a fully licensed and insured contractor with knowledge and experience. I do believe I got hired directly by the nationals because I am a woman and that helps with their statistics. I also wouldn't join a union because as a professional business owner that is not my place. I am not a sub. I support your work by refusing to compromise my principles for a quick buck. I do my best work every day and expect the same from my employees. And that includes my husband and my son. It hurts me to see the shoddy work others are doing that are allowed to claim the same title as I do that I work endlessly every day to uphold and deserve. I am proud of my business and the work we do. I just wish everyone else was too.

call me crazy but right now there are absolutely NO numbers for anything in this industry...
while the numbers are not as great as I'd like them to be as far as participation...well I'll also put this another way.I'm doing something that no one else has ever had the gut to do...when I done there will be numbers to plug into a matrix and there will be information to provide to people that can sit at the table and discuss the issues the industry has...
While I do not believe this time next year the people you refer to ,MNanny, will be in the industry...there will still be numbers that will reflect the mindset of the industry...
Just for the record...I have never said a union is the answer, even though many of the more prominent people of the industry believe t is...I still have reservations about a union...I believe people mistake "organize" with "union"... two different animals...
