Arcelormittal hiring 150 new workers, says U.S. needs stronger Buy America laws
ArcelorMittal Cleveland is actively hiring for 150 new positions, but good-paying manufacturing jobs like these could be in jeopardy without stronger “Buy America” policies that protect U.S. steel manufacturers and their workers.
Today, U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) visited ArcelorMittal's Cleveland plant, which will restart in the spring after being idled for more than three years. Brown wanted to provide an update on efforts to fill 150 new, good-paying jobs.
Brown was also joined by representatives from both Cliffs Natural Resources and the United Steelworkers (USW).
At a press conference at ArcelorMittal, Brown and others explained why strong “Buy America” provisions—particularly those related to the steel and iron used in public transit and infrastructure work—can help support manufacturing jobs throughtout the U.S.
