Steel imports

We have another steel producer in Madison County, Alton Steel. ASI is an independent owned mill and much smaller than USS Granite City, however, also affected by imports. ASI employees around 200 employees with hourly workers represented by the U S Steel Workers. Imports hurt the small businesses and their employees and families, when subsidized competition is what we must contend with. The Alton Steel story is an example of local people working together to bring industry back to the area, successfully, only to be challenged with events beyond their control.
It is time for our government to step up and recognize the unfair conditions the steel industry is facing and work to level the playing field. Steel being made in this country can compete with any from around the world. Those workers, making this high quality steel, deserve support.
