READ Ï And the Wolf Finally Came The Decline and Fall of the American Steel Industry Pitt Series in Social and Labor History A veteran reporter on American labor John P Hoerr analyzes the spectacular and tragic collapse of the steel. When I first moved to Pittsburgh in 1990 26 years ago I bought this book It had been published just a few years before and I thought reading it would give me insight into the place But at 620 pages it was a daunting prospect I got pregnant with my first child shortly thereafter and the time to read especially books like this dwindled as my family grewSo several years of an empty nest later I finally picked it up And I m so glad I did It is a fantastic read Perhaps not a page turner for most people but if you have a curiosity about the rise and fall of industrial America and wonder what happened to turn the steel belt into the rust belt it is a fascinating and reliable journalistic accountNow these many years later my intimacy with this place inspired a close reading as if it were the biography of a relative I work for my adopted city now On the river fronts that once housed the steel mills and the jobs of hundreds of thousands I help the City build office parks and shopping centers I look at economic and population statistics and trends routinely as part of my job So this book provided insight into the power structures of the region that I work to redevelop and the communities along the Monongahela River valley that I now know so well What is just as interesting even if you don t live here is Hoerr s insights into management and political philosophies of the leaders of the companies and the unions His thesis when management disregards the innovative and collaborative potential of it s labor force that labor force disconnects from the basic economics of the industry and this disconnect is poisonous when the economics of the business falters Management also gets entrenched in power struggles Labor and management get invested not in the prosperity of the company but in their relationship as adversaries across a bargaining table Too obsessed with preserving wage and benefits structures of a time of prosperity labor won battles without realizing it was in a war Management was too heavy handed and authoritarian to appeal to its labor leadership and its members as partners in the health and longevity of the business Everyone lost Especially the communities where steel is produced who continue all these years later to be challenged by these gigantic losses that the end of major manufacturing wrought on the Mon Valley and beyond I thought every one of those 620 pages was worth reading Hoerr is not a terrific writer but he is a terrific journalist with an attention to detail and a keen analytical mind He cares deeply about the Mon Valley where he grew up but picks no sides There s enough fault to go around in his telling Everyone he writes about is called to account in the failure of his lifetime The book is a cautionary tale about the abuse of power the failure to innovate and be flexible and the ostrich impulses of a parochial politic leadership which plays bingo while Rome burns The scale of the defeat is as big as the prosperity it once treated as god given Labor s victory over the companies lasted merely a generation And it s losses continue to ripple through the Pittsburgh landscape to this very day

READ Ï And the Wolf Finally Came The Decline and Fall of the American Steel Industry Pitt Series in Social and Labor History Industry in the 1980s And the Wolf Finally Came demonstrates how an obsolete and adversarial relationship be. I enjoyed this book thoroughly although I was at times exhausted by the level of detail in it It is also a useful book at this point in time when Donald Trump is promising the restoration of the American steelmaking and coal mining industries It is worthwhile to recall the reasons that led to the massive contraction in American steelmaking during the 1980s and afterwards The author apportions blame to both the management of steel companies as well as to the United Steelworkers union Both grew complacent during the 40s 50s and 60s when the major steel companies in America operated under cartel like conditions When competition eventually came from both foreign steelmakers as well as non unionized minimills in the US they were caught completely unprepared
