On Feb. 7, Scott Paul, President of the Alliance for American Manufacturing spoke about steel and aluminum being overproduced and sent to America to be sold for low prices during his time on America’s Work Force.
Paul talked about China manufacturing more steel and aluminum than it needs and then selling the rest to the United States for rock-bottom prices, making it unfair to U.S. workers and manufacturers. He talked about making tougher import laws in hopes of slowing down the importing of Chinese steel and aluminum.
