Liveblog: Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) President Scott Paul Wraps Up #SOSJobs Rally in Granite City, IL.

Posted by scapozzola on 05/16/2014

At today's #SOSJobs rally in Granite City, IL, Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) President Scott Paul offered some words of encouragement for America's steelmakers and their workers as they pursue a trade case against dumped steel imports:

This is the real test.  If we don't enforce our trade laws and stand up to dumping, we won't have a strong steel industry.

Paul pointed to the letter sent yesterday by 57 U.S. Senators to the Commerce Department:

You can't get senators to agree that the sky is blue.  But they can agree on this.  Our steel industry matters. And we need to stand up to dumped steel.

Watch live.
