Nearly 100,000 jobs can be linked to the steel industry through direct employment or ripple effects throughout the economy. For every one job in the steel industry, two more jobs are created. These jobs generate approximately $4.8 billion in wages.
More than 22,000 Ohio residents work directly for companies that produce or process steel products. Those companies pay more than $600 million in taxes to Ohio and its local communities, and $700 million in federal taxes. Revenue from those taxes is used to maintain and strengthen local, state and federal programs. In addition, the steel industry in Ohio spends about $315 million per year on capital expenditures and utilizes some of the most advanced technologies in the world.
