I had a grandfather and an uncle who worked in the steel mills. They were it though. They started going down long about the time about the y'alls did. My dad didn't work in the mills and obviously I didn't either. Besides being totally inept regarding anything mechanical or construction, I could see the hand writing on the wall regarding the mills.My mom's family was one of those. Her dad helped unionize Bethlehem Steel, and her five brothers all worked there at one point or another. My uncle stayed with Bethlehem long after production stopped in Lackawanna as a process consultant.
