Is there a cobblestone mafia in Spain?

They’ve been working on a sidewalk near our place for the last month, carefully fitting each stone next to the other. I think they make a couple meters progress each day.

When I compare this to how little time it takes to make a concrete sidewalk in the US (which has the added advantage that the stones don’t come loose and trip you), I wonder if there’s some kind of weird law keeping the cobblestone workers in a job.
