There is a shortage in this country of scrap and feed materials for steel making-and Nucor has it all tied up. That means importing feed at volatile prices, where from there is also a shortage of that or one of the only suppliers is Venezuela-they just love Americans. What technology is being used and what is the environment going to look like-no steel company in the U.S. is handling the wastes as it is? there is technology out there but the mills won't spend the dime to use, even when it will save them millions.
this country has 125 million tons of steel capacity as it is and it is only producing about 60 million.

Nucor is running ads in the paper fighting this new steel mill. South Mississippi needs the jobs an there's enough workers for both. Give us a break so we might come out of this depression we've been in for awhile. Meanwhile Armorel an the north end of the county an out of towners benefit from Nucor.

Going by your own logic, out-of-towners would benefit from BRS, not people from Osceola or southern Mississippi county.

There is a lot of anger and vitriol from Blytheville locals aimed at Nucor, so I don't understand what makes BRS special or any different?

South Mississippi County needs jobs. How hard is that to understand. Competition is good for Nucor.
