Since President Trump enacted tariffs on foreign steel imports U.S. Steel has decided to restart both furnaces, meaning the return of 800 jobs.
This afternoon local KSDK reporter spoke with one of the steelworkers at the Granite City plant.
The man says he is a third generation steelworker and was out of work for two-and-a-half years.
He then cries as he talks about President Trump and the life he has brought back to this eastern Illinois community.
US Steel Worker: It's nice to know we got someone is fighting for us, to keep our jobs. It was rough for a lot of us.
KSDK reporter: If you had one thing to say to the people watching about President Trump what would you want them to know?
US Steel Worker: We're back.
