Marble Setters, Tile Setters, and Terrazzo Workers
Employment opportunities for tile and marble setters are expected to grow faster than the average for all careers through 2018, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Growth will result from more construction of shopping malls, hospitals, schools, restaurants, high-end homes, and other structures in which tile is used extensively. Growth may be offset somewhat by the increasing use of tile substitutes, such as plastic or fiberglass tub and shower enclosures.
