CHICAGO — Steelmakers are warning that the United States is still not doing enough to cut the COVID threat posed by COVID.
The steel industry’s annual meeting this week was held in Chicago, and its chairman, Joseph Sonderman, has been pressing the Trump administration to do more to reduce the COVS strain on the industry.
He says the industry has been in an economic slump for years.
Sonderman says the U.S. has about 3 million jobs, including about 4 million in manufacturing.
He points out that most of them are low-wage jobs.
He argues that the country should do more than just talk about it.
