At #SOSJobs Rally in Alabama, U.S. Congressman Robert Aderholt Stands up for America's Steel Industry.

Posted by scapozzola on 06/16/2014

At this afternoon's #SOSJobs rally in Fairfield, Alabama, Rep. Robert Aderholt (R-AL) emphasized the importance of fighting for America's steel jobs.

At a steel jobs rally at U. S. Steel's Fairfield Works and Tubular Operations, Rep. Aderholt said America needs to defend its steel industry:

This is one thing that Democrats and Republicans agree on because manufacturing means jobs.  That's what this is all about.

Aderholt cited the precedent of fighting for American-made pipes in America's drinking water infrastructure: "And now Buy America is the law of the land."

Rep. Aderholt said he's pushing for more of this type of Buy America legislation.  And with regard to dumped steel pipe, Aderholt stated:

We believe that jobs are important for the state of Alabama and for the U.S.  We want to see our jobs protected.  We can work for you to save jobs in the United States.
