The MS County Quorum Court just said a "big suck it" to Nucor on Tuesday night. They approved 14.5 million dollars in county economic development tax funds for BIG RIVER STEEL. The State will grant their part next week. So Nucor, cry us a river...a BIG RIVER and then get out of town if you don't like it. We don't need the Nucor Hickman aholes.

not a suck it, just a big yes to local competition and what's best for our county.

years ago, when the russians were flooding the market, nucor cried that it could complete with anyone in the world if the playing field was even.

guess we will see.

I just hope Nucor does not shut down Hickman just to prove a point. What will county realize if Nucor shuts down plant?

In a previous post on Topix somebody said Nucor would use its
influence (money) to stop Big River. I say yeah, well hide and watch! They actually do not own Mississippi like they think they do.

Move their mill to Dyersburg or Kennett or Jonesboro where their upper management lives!

At least ole Correnti lives in Blytheville.

yes, MS County Quorum Court gave Nucor ZERO votes.

I guess MS County will get to see just how much of a negative impact Nucor can have on this sad place

I bet all the big Nucor donations to all the charity programs will get real small!!!!!!!!!!

Nucor Hickman SUCKS. I hope they shut it down. But they won't. They thought they were the bully on the block. Now they are seeing what their real place is, they like to give shat, now they are eating it. After Big River Steel is approved they will go crawl back under their rock. Just like worms and maggots. FO ahole Nucor Hickman. You are a horrible employer.

sometimes knowing someone that works at a place HURTS more than it helps. You may think you have a friend trying to help you get a job and they are actually trying to PREVENT you from getting a job!!!!

I think it is sometime easier if you do NOT know anyone!!!!!!!!!!

And as everyone talks shit about Nucor, 1st quarter down and I'm sitting at $25k on a bad year. So keep on hating and hoping you can work for a major player one day. Maybe you will get in at Big River for the Construction, One year of trial production, and the moth balling of the facility. I ain't never seen so many HATERS talk trash. Cry me a Big River!!! Whaa Whaa I can't work at Nucor cuz I can't pass a 6th grade test, Whaa whaa

Just like Thysenn Krup?? How'd that Mega Mill turn out in this market?? Let me guess, you don't know because you don't know anything about the steel industry. I'll fill you in, The Mega Mill took a big fat shit. You have to turn a profit. It's not gonna be as easy as everyone believes. So who stands a better chance to make a profit in this SOFT market? A company that has Zero Debt and $4Billion in the kitty

What I don't understand is all the hate aimed at Nucor, but nothing but love for BRS by people in Mississippi County and on Topix.

How is BRS going to be any different than Nucor? They won't hire you either, and if they do it won't help their chances against Nucor if they hire all the rejects.

Nucor is a proven company with a proven track record. They are the largest steel producer in the U.S. and is #138 on the Fortune 500 list. BRS has a HUGE uphill battle to survive once built, and will probably do what all other upstarts have done: sell their steel at a huge loss in a vain attempt to gain market share. Like so many others, they will shutter in a few years, but in the meantime they will damage Nucor, especially Hickman.

Hickman was being looked at for an expansion, but I doubt they will go through with that now. Bonuses will diminish, and some jobs will be transferred. Of course, the morons in Mississippi County will likely jeer at Nucor as they fall, not realizing that their sad, pathetic county is already on the ropes and they would be hurting one of their few valuable industries.
