A seven-story plant with just 312 non-union employees in the Ohio town of Leipsic is "probably the best, shining example of the direction" of U.S. Steel (X), says CEO John Surma. The facility makes high-margin, custom-designed products with low-cost, highly automated equipment. A major customer is the automotive industry, which is prepared to pay the premium for the more refined steel. The facility contrasts with other, more expensive and unionized U.S. Steel facilities that employ thousands, yield tiny margins and struggle to compete.

    Absolutely. Lets go non-union so that everybody can enjoy a higher quality of life. Lower pay, less benefits and you can be let go at a moments notice. Sign me up. As long as the CEO and Wall Street are eating well,I am willing to sacrifice my family and my way of life.
