    Thousands Boycott Tyson Foods Amid Plan To Hire 42,000 Asylum Seekers In New York

    Thousands Boycott Tyson Foods Amid Plan To Hire 42,000 Asylum Seekers In New York

    Angry campaigners are urging shoppers to boycott Tyson Foods and its products amid its new move to hire thousands of asylum seekers. The food company has shut down more of its poultry and meat plants across the U.S., including facilities in Iowa, Virginia, and Arkansas, which employed over 2,000 people.

    Tyson Foods has recently hired dozens of immigrants, with the offer including immigration lawyers. The boycott is motivated by the fear that immigrants are replacing Americans for low-grade jobs. Statistics have also shown that there's a significant decrease in the number of native-born Americans in the blue-collar workforce.



    Shoppers Are Boycotting Tyson Foods Due To The Closures





    MEGA


    America First Legal and many campaigners are pushing for a boycott of Tyson Foods and its products. The boycott is due to the company's recent closures of multiple poultry and meat processing plants in Iowa, Indiana, Virginia, Arkansas, and Missouri. The closures are because Tyson plans to hire thousands of asylum seekers in New York, a move that is extremely controversial among Americans.

    The campaigners are accusing Tyson of using the closures to ditch American workers for cheaper migrant labor. America First Legal is a conservative action group launched by former Trump administration officials, and they've warned the company that favoring immigrants is illegal.

    The group posted a statement online that reads, "It is ILLEGAL under federal law to discriminate against American citizens based on their citizenship in favor of non-citizens of any kind when it comes to employment."

    So far, Tyson Foods has yet to respond to the statement or speak on its decision to employ more migrants.

    Tyson Foods Has Closed Multiple Plants Recently





    MEGA


    Earlier this week, Tyson announced the closure of its Pork Plant in Perry, Iowa. The shutdown has cost 1276 people their jobs in a town that houses just 8,000 people.

    According to local news sources, the majority of the workers at the Iowa plant were Latinos.

    In May last year, Tyson Foods closed down two plants in Arkansas and Virginia, putting over 1600 people out of jobs. The month before, the company announced that it was working on cutting 10 percent of its corporate jobs and 15 percent of its executive roles.

    After the company's 2022-2023 sales numbers hit a 0.8 percent slump, Tyson announced plans to shutter several more plants, including its locations in Arkansas, Indiana, and Missouri. The closure is scheduled for the first half of 2024.


    They Plan To Hire Thousands Of Immigrants



    The boycott is motivated by Tyson's decision to hire thousands of asylum seekers primarily located in New York and other cities. They need to fill up the roles in more undesirable categories due to the sinking unemployment rate of 3.9 percent.

    Tyson currently employs over 40,000 immigrants in its 120,000-plus-strong workforce in its US businesses. They're boosting this number significantly by collaborating with the Tent Partnership for Refugees, which is a non-profit focused on helping immigrants in the US.

    Garret Dolan, the head of Tyson's social efforts division, recently told Bloomberg that the company "would like to employ another 42,000 if we could find them."

    Over the past few weeks, the company has hired more asylum seekers from Mexico, Colombia, and Venezuela, all from a job fair in New York.

    According to Dolan's statements to Bloomberg, companies like Tyson need more asylum seekers to fill the employment gaps at their plants.

    Their job offers for immigrants start at $16.50 per hour, with benefits like fully paid-for immigration lawyers.

    There Is A Fear That Migrants Are Replacing Americans

    Campaigners are kicking back against Tyson's decision to employ more immigrants because of fears that they're replacing Americans in the labor industry.

    This is especially critical in meat-packing and other plant-related jobs, which are generally considered undesirable for Americans themselves.

    Data released by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics show that between July and August 2023, the workforce suffered a significant decline in native-born workers, at about 1.2 million people. In contrast, foreign-born workers witnessed a boom in employment, gaining about 668,000 jobs.

    Social Media Is Enraged By Tyson Foods' Decision




    On social media, several people have expressed their displeasure at Tyson Foods for deciding to hire more migrant workers.

    One person wrote on TikTok, "I haven't eaten Tyson in years. Won't start now. Their food is c--- anyway and treat the farm animals like [they're] in a holocaust. No thanks."

    Another said, "It's one thing hiring them, but laying off U.S. citizens to hire them is another."

    A third person asked, "Are they hiring them [because] citizens don't want to do that job anymore though? I would like [the] whole story [because] that's a lot of positions to fill if there isn't an underlying issue."

    One more person said, "Disgusting. Hope they go out of business very soon."

    We have been fed the LIE "they come here to do jobs Americans won't do".

    We are fed up with their lies.

    Boycott them and shut them down.

    They are doing this to employ ILLEGAL ALIENS, why are they not able to create a Relocate to Work Program for legal U.S. citizens!

    They have taken our construction jobs, warehouse jobs, factory jobs, and many jobs from American's.

    They have taken over entire blocks of our housing; they are destroying our communities.

    Shut down all immigration, cut off the welfare and food stamps, and get legal U.S. citizens back to work.
