Huffington Post: 'One damning report'


Leo W. Gerard, International President of the United Steelworkers writes on the pages of Huffington Post that the report Preparing for 21st century risks, published by the Alliance for American Manufacturing,  is ‘damning’, as it claims that America is in danger because of the deteriorated state of its infrastructure. The authors urge the US to restore its infrastructure lifelines so that it can fend off and recover from natural and man-made disasters. They warn that "there is a direct nexus between a strong domestic manufacturing sector and America’s ability to prevent, mitigate, recover from and rebuild quickly in the wake of catastrophic events.”
