Posted by Keith Severson on Mar 18, 2015

The current U.S. unemployment rate stands at about a whopping 8.8%. Evidently, large portions of the population are looking for careers, but are ending with no success.  There are, however, employers, specifically in the construction industry, that are currently seeking men and women who are interested in a career path in construction.

After 50 years, Graniterock’s 5½ yard mixer truck comes home.

Posted by Jim West on Mar 18, 2015

After 50 years, Graniterock’s 5½ yard mixer truck comes home. In the early 1950s, Graniterock purchased ten 1944 surplus military trucks from United States Navy, turning them into 5½ yard concrete ready mix trucks, which were suited perfectly for deliveries in challenging situations. It appears that Graniterock’s “Yes We Will” policy has a long history. These trucks are referred to as 6X6s by the military, because a driver could lock power to all six sets of wheel—these trucks were the ultimate off-road vehicle. Powered by a six cylinder, 450 cubic inch, high-torque engine, these mixers could fight their way through almost anything while hauling 5½ yard of ready-mix concrete. They helped our GIs win WWII and helped Graniterock win satisfied customers throughout the rugged Santa Cruz Mountains. The paint and company signs may be faded and the front bumper bent, but Graniterock’s 67 year-old #180 transit mixer still runs and was driven onto the low bed trailer for the ride home to join in the Company’s other historical vehicles. This is a great new addition to the historical fleet that Graniterock maintains, including a 1950 2-yard concrete mixer truck, #138, that is often referred to as ‘cute’, a 1928 Model AA pick-up truck, and working rollers, graders, and all the vehicles in the works which stand as a valuable symbol of Graniterock’s long history of quality construction in the Bay Area and represents the Company’s commitment to a strong and successful future.

Social Security was Created in 1935

Posted by Bruce W. Woolpert on Mar 18, 2015

DID YOU KNOW? Since 1935 when Social Security was created, life expectancy has increased by 26% to age 78, while Social Security’s retirement age has gone up just 3 percent, to 67. Social Security’s problems are rooted not just in longevity (which is a good thing) but also in the ratio of people working to those already drawing their Social Security benefit. In 1945, there were 42 workers for a single retiree. In 2009, there were three workers for every retiree.
