Posted by scapozzola on 06/16/2014

At this afternoon's #SOSJobs rally in Fairfield, Alabama, Rep. Terri A. Sewell (D-AL) focused on the need to save America's steel jobs.

Addressing a packed rally of Steelworkers at U. S. Steel's Fairfield Works and Tubular Operations, Sewell picked up a chant of "Steel...strong" and said she wants to stand up for steelworkers around the U.S.:

We need to stand together.  It's unacceptable that we have so many imports dumped in America, when we make so much steel in America.  We're putting partisanship aside to fight for American steel.
