Tariffs prompt US Steel to restart work on Alabama mill

US Steel says it is restarting construction on an Alabama mill to take advantage of higher steel prices.
The company had stopped work on a furnace at the plant in 2015 because of unfavorable market conditions. But US Steel said it resumed construction because of the Trump administration’s trade policies, as well as incentives from the state and local government and support from the United Steelworkers union.
