Trump Tariffs Win Higher Wages for Michigan, Minnesota Steelworkers

ㅤ"The 1,850 American steelworkers who are set to see wage increases are based in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan’s Tilden and Empire mines and the United Taconite and Hibbing Taconite mines in Iron Range, Minnesota.
ㅤThe wage increases were only made possible as the iron, steel, and overall metals industry has seen a boom after President Trump enacted a 25 percent tariff on imported steel and a ten percent tariff on aluminum.
ㅤCleveland Cliffs executives are so supportive of Trump’s tariffs on imported products that they have launched an ad campaign talking up the benefits the economic nationalist agenda has brought for American workers and the metal industry.
ㅤIron Range, Minnesota — which was devastated by multinational free trade deals — has been revitalized by the Trump tariffs. A local report this month noted how small businesses in Iron Range are seeing employment booms and a growing economy thanks to the strong production of the iron mines in the region."
