What Bert Has To Say About Weirton-Steubenville Metro Area

Weirton is one of the eastern Ohio Valley’s region’s many small steel towns, dominated by the large International Steel Group’s Weirton works. Steubenville, across the Ohio River also has a steel heritage but has begun to diversify. The decline of steel and its related industries has led to higher unemployment, low job growth prospects and a significant population decline in recent years.
