In an interview with the Washington Post, a former land surveyors training school executive said he has heard a lot of negative comments about the job.
“It’s not the right job for these people,” said John M. Mascola, who now runs the Colorado School of Mines in Denver, which trains its land surveyORS and supervisors.
“They’ve got this sense of entitlement to a job and a career, which they have been trained to be in the industry for,” he added.
“It’s been an unfair industry for a long time, and it’s not sustainable anymore.
You don’t need a surveyor to know how to do it.”
Mascola added that he doesn’t want to be seen as the guy who is being replaced.
“I’m not the one in charge of this job,” he said.
“I’ve been a surveyors instructor for 30 years, and I’m proud of the work we’ve done,” Mascoto told the Post.
“And the way I see it, that’s where I’m going to be.”
He also said he didn’t expect the job to change much.
“We have a workforce that’s growing, and we’re not going to stop that,” he told the newspaper.
“We’re going to keep doing it.
We’re going back to our roots.”
