    Tyson Foods wants to hire 52,000 asylum seekers for factory jobs

    The food processing company wants to hire migrants who are arriving in New York for jobs Americans don't want.

    New York City shelters are overwhelmed with migrants.

    Many of them have arrived in Texas or Florida and then taken buses to New York, where shelter and benefits are guaranteed. However, the city is scrambling as the number continues to climb and the migrants look to build a new life in America, which includes housing and work.

    But for companies like Tyson Foods Inc., struggling to fill unpopular jobs with a U.S. unemployment rate of 3.9%, this new population presents an alluring opportunity.

    The food processing company wants to hire 52,000 asylum seekers for factory jobs, offering a starting wage of $16.50 per hour along with benefits. The company understands and is aware that these are jobs that many find unpleasant, such as washing meat, placing the cuts into trays, final inspections for bones and packing meat, but believe this will help the refugees to start a life in America.

    For example, the company says that it has allocated $1.5 million a year for legal aid services and will be providing its new employees with temporary housing, on-site child care, transportation, a relocation stipend, and paid time off to attend court hearings and to adjust to their new homes.

    The company joined forces with the nonprofit Tent Partnership for Refugees, a network of over 400 major companies committed to helping refugees find jobs, with the plan to hire as many people as possible from the more than 180,000 asylum seekers that have come through New York City’s shelter system. Tyson, for example, already employs about 42,000 immigrants.

    According to anEconomic Policy Instituteanalysis of federal data, about 50% of the labor market’s recent growth came from foreign-born workers between January 2023 and January 2024.

    Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell said last week that immigration and labor participation contributed to economic strength.

    "The immigration that we saw was a notable factor of 2023 and 2024 economic outcomes, and of course we're aware of that, and it plays a role in our way of thinking about economic policy and in the path of the economy," Powell said.

    While asylum seekers are not authorized to work as soon as they arrive in the U.S., they are expected to apply for asylum within the first year of their arrival and can receive a work permit 180 days after submitting the application. However, because of immigration backlogs, it’s taking some people longer.

    So far this year, Tyson says they have hired 87 migrants from New York.

    Don’t give dollars to traitors and to those who aid and abet this invasion.

    But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.

    Tyson Foods Under Fire and Boycott Calls for Replacing Hardworking Americans with Ill

    Tyson Foods Under Fire and Boycott Calls for Replacing Hardworking Americans with Illegal Immigrants

    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.

    Tyson Foods is accused of creating a database with tens of thousands of illegal immigrants, offering wages of $16.50 per hour along with free legal services for immigration.

    The Great Replacement in action.

    Tyson Foods is firing American workers and replacing them with illegals.

    Adding insult to injury, Tyson Foods will also provide lawyers to help with "immigration" hearings.

    Disgraceful. Boycott Tyson Foods!!

    Bloomberg reported:

    For politicians in Washington and New York City, an unprecedented stream of asylum seekers presents an intractable problem with no easy answers. For companies like Tyson Foods Inc., struggling to fill unpleasant jobs with a US unemployment rate of 3.9%, this new population presents an alluring opportunity.

    Tyson is joining the nonprofit
    Tent Partnership for Refugees, which was founded by Chobani yogurt magnate Hamdi Ulukaya, with a plan to hire some of the 181,400 migrants that have come through New York City’s intake system over the past two years. The meatpacker already employs about 42,000 immigrants among its 120,000-strong US workforce.

    “We would like to employ another 42,000 if we could find them,” said Garrett Dolan, who
    leads Tyson’s efforts to eliminate employment barriers such as immigration status or the need for childcare.

    On a cold day last month, Tyson officials met with immigrants at Chobani’s offices in Manhattan and hired 17 asylum seekers from Venezuela, Mexico and Colombia for jobs at its plant in Humboldt, Tennessee. Last week, it hired 70 more.

    Tyson is also investing in retaining immigrant workers, having earmarked $1.5 million a year for legal aid services in 2023 and 2024 and providing paid time off for workers to attend court hearings. Last year, Tyson paid for 1,317 workers to become US citizens.

    Tyson is closing its facility in Perry, Iowa and laying off its 1,200 workers. Instead, they plan to hire thousands of new illegals in states like New York.#BoycottTyson. Pass it on.

    They should start a Relocate to Work program for legal U.S. citizens who want to move but can't.
    ILLEGAL ALIENS HAVE "BROKEN" OUR IMMIGRATION SYSTEM
