Best of luck to you.

I hope you have your retirement age down to where you can enjoy the rest of your life.

My IBEW local is still at 65. And nobody wants an old worker.
55 is the earliest with penalty of 2% per year.

Not a steel worker but a UAW worker. We are in negotiations now. We are a former General Motors/Delphi parts plant that got sold off under the Delphi bankruptcy. Contract expires 9/15 and the company and union are miles apart. Of course the company wants to break it off in our asses.

Just look at what the de-industrialization of our country's primary industries have done to the Firebrick/Refractories industry!

AP Greeen, Harbison Walker and North American are now a shadow of themselves under ANH!!

I figure that more than 50 percent of the places I have worked in and visited when I was working for Greens are closed.

Good luck with you guys that are still left.

I'm not a steel worker but I do buy all USA made steel. We are a smaller company and are just starting to hit our busy season. It is late this year for some reason. I want to say THANK YOU for your work.

Also Fuck You China for the shit scrape price.

"chinks should be cut off from being allowed to buy the USA scrap....."

I figure that it is the "scrap brokers" that are the GGSOB's that will sell to them regardless if they can make a dime and f** all the rest of us.

People really need to look hard into commodity contract/brokers and such because I figure that these are the people that are making a PERCENT vs WAGES per transaction here for doing no more than handling PAPER!!

They sure the f** aren't out mining/growing/manufacturing/handling anything, now are they!!

BUT my word, look at the MONEY they make off those that do the REAL work!!

CSer's are smarter than me because they handle paper and I always handled a f** tool!.....
