The Courage That's Needed to Work in Steel Mills


For many who live in either Indiana and Illinois, either you work in the steel industry, or you know someone who does. Steel is big business in the Midwest.

Working in a steel mill is incredibly dangerous. A USWA worker is killed while doing his job every TEN DAYS across the country (see report, p.2). In 2008, the number of deaths in steel mills was higher than it had been in years. Today, fingers can point to the decline in steel demand and the pressure on companies to maximize their dollars, trying to stay out of the red. The U.S. Steel industry is suffering along with the rest of the economy these days.

Working steel is dangerous and takes courage. Steel workers deserve acknowledgment and respect for that fact.
