I returned from a visit to Australia recently. While I was there I spoke to a top engineer (Grahm Shaw) who informed me that construction is moving away from steel and into seriously reinforced concrete. Rebar, I-bars and the like are fading into obsolescence in the rest of the 1st and even 3rd world because of advances.

My point is that automation and other factors mentioned above are the death toll of steel. The bigger issue is that these type of workers be treated with Social dignity in their exit strategy.
