ith President-elect Donald Trump soon taking office, businesses are optimistic about the soon-to-be-changing economic landscape in the country. United States Steel is one such company that is already planning to do things differently under a Trump administration.
“We already structured to do some things, but when you see in the near future improvement to the tax laws, improvements to regulation, those two things by themselves may be a significant driver to what we’re going to do,” CEO Mario Longhi said in an interview with CNBC.
“I’d be more than happy to bring back the employees we’ve been forced to lay off during that depressive period,” he added, which “could be close to 10,000 jobs.”
The company later clarified that Longhi was referring to jobs in the steel industry as a whole, not just at U.S. Steel.
