Iron and steel industry in the United States - employment 2013-2018 Employment in the U.S. iron and steel industry has seen a continuous decline over the past three years, but employment figures have shown some signs of recovery of late. The number of employees working in blast furnaces and steel mills increased moderately to 81,000 in 2018.
 The importance of being an importer  

  Nucor and U.S. Steel Corporation are the largest producers of steel in the United States. At the end of 2018, these two companies had some 55,000 employees on their payrolls, some 17,000 of which were employed by U.S. Steel in the United States. Nucor employs most of its workforce in the U.S., although the company has some facilities in Canada, Latin America, Europe, and Dubai. Iron and steel workers in the United States process large quantities of iron, which is the main material used in the manufacture of steel. The main producers of usable iron ore include Australia and Brazil. The U.S. has to rely on iron imports due to the low level of domestic production. As a result, the United States imported almost 31 million metric tons of steel in 2018.
