Tyson Foods Under Fire and Boycott Calls for Replacing Hardworking Americans...

•, By Jim Hoft

Tyson Foods Inc., a major player in the global meat industry, has come under intense scrutiny over allegations of terminating American workers' employment and then favoring illegal immigrants for hiring.

The company's recent announcement of a plant closure in Perry, Iowa, has added fuel to the ongoing controversy.

The Gateway Pundit previously reported on the closure of Tyson's significant pork packing plant in Perry, Iowa, a move that pushes 1,276 employees toward unemployment.

"After careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to permanently close our Perry, Iowa pork facility. We understand the impact of this decision on our team members and the local community," a spokesperson said in a statement.

Taking care of our team members is our top priority and we encourage them to apply for other open roles within the company. We are also working closely with state and local officials to provide additional resources to those who are impacted."

Perry, located in Dallas County and about 40 miles northwest of Des Moines, had a population of just over 7,800 people, according to the 2020 Census. The impact of the plant's closure is expected to ripple through the community, affecting not only the workers but also the local economy.

This decision follows the shutdown of two chicken plants and a series of job cuts made last year.

Tyson Foods had also signaled the closure of four more facilities by mid-fiscal 2024, anticipating related costs to be in the range of 300 to 400 million, as per reports by USA Today.

Bloomberg reported that days after the mass layoff, Tyson Foods partnered with Tent Partnership for Refugees to hire thousands of illegal immigrants.

The company allegedly held a job fair in Iowa targeting immigrants while the displaced American workers are left without paychecks.
