Possible cutbacks at U.S. Steel. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports the company's new CEO, Mario Longhi, is weighing ideas to cut costs. One plan involves shutting down steelmaking operations at the Fairfield works. Under the plan, the plant would produce only pipe and tubing for the energy industry. It is unclear how many jobs would be lost. A temporary shutdown in 2009 idled more than 1,000 steelworkers. U.S. Steel has not reported a profit since 2008.
