Lockout at AK Steel puts town on the outs

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
The lockout at AK Steel’s Middletown Works, which entered its eighth month Sunday, isn’t just a battle between a company and its union workers.
The effects of the lockout, which already has resulted in the loss of hundreds of jobs, are spreading across the community, home to steelmaking for more than a century.
Small businesses are feeling the hurt, and the city government faces cutbacks in police and firefighters.
