On September 19, 1977 Youngstown Sheet and Tube announced shutdowns and massive layoffs at their Campbell Works. This move was followed by similar announcements at Sheet & Tube’s Brier Hill Works, all of U.S. Steel Corporation’s District operations, and the Republic Steel Corporation in Youngstown between 1979 and 1981. In all, more than 10,000 good paying jobs were lost in the local steel industry. Mark this anniversary with news footage and stories from the 1970s & 1980s with a discussion to follow.
