Result of Trump’s Tariffs – Hiring of Laid Off American Steel Workers

- in Features, News

Oh, those dang tariffs. NeverTrumpers, their Communist collaborators and its media complex of elitists are not going to be happy about this news.

Steel jobs are finally returning to Granite City, Illinois but you would not know it if you listened to the fallacies as espoused by the Communist media complex.

Breitbart News by John Binder

American workers in an Illinois steel town are finally seeing relief after years of job-killing free trade thanks to President Trump’s 25 percent tariff on imported steel.

A Chicago Tribune report by Samantha Bomkamp reveals how Granite City, Illinois, is seeing a renewed steel industry after Trump’s tariffs on steel imports were implemented.

In 2015, the Illinois steel town saw 2,000 layoffs of American steel workers from the city’s local steel plant. Now, because of Trump’s tariffs on steel, the Granite City steel plant is rehiring 800 steel workers—about half of which will be those who were laid off in 2015 and the other half will be new hires.

Local business owners told the Chicago Tribune that they’re happy to see the steel jobs reopening in their town, as they say, the layoffs in 2015 hit their businesses as well:

The restart is causing an influx of customers at Park Grill, which is adjacent to the plant and was hit hard after the 2015 layoffs. Some steelworkers eat multiple meals a day at the grill. Railroad workers, truck drivers and others who have jobs supporting the plant also stop in or place orders for burgers and barbecue sandwiches. [Emphasis added]

Exposing those invested in the outsourcing of American jobs.

In the meantime, the swamp, Chamber of Commerce and the Republican Party establishment are fighting the President’s tariffs which boils down to their fighting the return of American jobs, primarily, those are among the jobs that Barack Obama stated would never return to the U.S..

See the Chamber of Commerce’s 2018 agenda below.  It’s priority is solely about outsourcing American jobs abroad and protection trade agreements.

As usual, the elites are on the wrong side.  As usual, it is them against us.  Thankfully, we are winning.
