Hey man, you're right. US Steel just doesn't get it. They are too busy screwing around ALL their workers (both US and Canadian) that they're missing the bus on new orders for steel

I don't care if any canadian bad mouths USS. Looks like they have treated them as USS treated us at GLW then dropped them like a hot potato. USS treated us workers like trash. So I for one think we should not come to their forum to bricker and ask they show the same respect at our forum. Any steelworker whom can't understand the tension must be management or from one of the great and famed "old" mills. DONE!

It's one thing to criticize US Steel. I totally agree with that. It's another thing to criticize America. I'll defend the US to the end, whether it be a Canadian, YOU, or anyone else.
