Stephen Capone’s company, Capone Iron Corporation, makes a range of fabricated steel products. Things like beams, columns and trusses to anchor bolts and leveling plates. You know, the type of stuff that goes into new buildings, bridges and other infrastructure.
But Capone stopped bidding on taxpayer-funded projects like these years ago.
Unfair trade practices by many foreign countries have created an unlevel playing field for American companies and workers. These foreign governments use unfair trade practices like massive subsidies, state-owned enterprises and currency manipulation to boost their own companies, who then bid on U.S. taxpayer-funded contracts far below fair market value.
