July 7, 2014: The final #SOSJobs countdown

Posted by mmcmullan on 07/07/2014

Good morning,

and welcome to the Early Shift. We hope you enjoyed the fireworks on the Fourth and got some rest over the weekend, because there's a big decision expected this week: The U.S. Commerce Department is expected to announce its final decision in a trade case that could affect thousands of steel jobs across the United States.

Will American steelworkers be forced to compete with a flood of imports, dumped into the U.S. at prices way below fair market value? Or will our government enforce its on-the-books trade laws?

Find out what’s at stake for those steelworkers. And then take action to help them out.

But it's not all trade cases in the Early Shift: We've got our ears to the ground for cool cultural phenonema. To wit: Check out the good use someone got out of a drone on Independence Day.

Have a good week, America!
