Tyson Foods Faces Controversy Over Recruitment of Illegal Immigrants amid Plant Closures

Tyson Foods aims to recruit tens of thousands of illegal immigrants and migrants for food processing roles amid plant closures and layoffs of American workers.

Reportedly seeking over 40,000 individuals, Tyson seeks to capitalize on cheap labor from Central America, Africa, and the Middle East. While Tyson’s HR leader lauds the loyalty of these workers, the company has faced backlash, later dismissing the statements as “misinformation.”

Tyson emphasizes its adherence to legal employment practices, highlighting participation in programs like E-Verify. The move comes amidst Tyson’s decision to permanently close plants across several states, citing a focus on operational efficiency.
