Heard that the undercutting and rating cutting has started between the contractors. I'am I surprised NO I was told its getting ugly already have to see how far it goes it may get down to working for expenses and no profit. Its going to be fun seeing a battle royal when things get really tight for work this winter. Sure glad I don't work for a excavation contractor right now the lay offs will be not too far off. The no realestate sales are having affect even houses in the 300,000 and less range are not even selling. It is all good because it will be a eye opener for all the greedy people especially the babyboomer generation. Maybe the local gov'ts will realize you need sustainable employement. A economy running off of realestate and house construction isn't good enough. I won't be surprised if some of the excavating companies close up shop how can they afford to make equipment payments with very little jobs. With the pinching and hair pulling starting I guess it will be back to none of the contractors speaking to each other. Usually the bad mouthing starts too.
