Tyson Foods to close Chicago plant, lay off 480 (Illegal alien) workers

From: Crime In Chicago (immigr...)

Tyson Foods announced Thursday that it will close one its
Chicago plants next year as it consolidates production at other
facilities.

The shutdown of the facility at 4201 S. Ashland Ave., which will
occur before Oct. 1, 2016, will mean the loss of 480 jobs.

The company also plans to close a pepperoni plant in Jefferson,
Wis. The age of both facilities and the anticipated cost to
renovate them was a factor in the decision, as was the distance
of the Chicago plant from supplier facilities.

The Ashland Avenue plant makes prepared meals for the
hospitality industry, among other clients, said Worth Sparkman,
Tyson Foods spokesman. Items like tempura chicken, meatballs,
crepes, omelets, soups, sauces and chicken cordon bleu are made
there.

Sparkman said the facility is limited in its ability to meet
changing demands but declined to provide additional details. "We
may have a different type of product that can't be produced
there, but can be produced elsewhere," said Sparkman, who
declined to say what locations would absorb Chicago's work.

The 480 jobs to be cut at the Chicago plant are mostly hourly,
production-line jobs, Sparkman said. Tyson Foods bought the
plant in 1994.

Tyson's two other Chicago facilities, a plant at 3548 N. Kostner
Ave., which makes steaks, and offices at 400 S. Jefferson St.,
will continue to operate, Sparkman said.

Closing the Jefferson, Wis., plant will mean the loss of an
additional 400 jobs.

"We examined many options before we turned down this road,"
Donnie King, president of North American operations for Tyson,
said in a statement. "This affects the lives of our team members
and their families, making it a very difficult decision. But
after long and careful consideration, we've determined we can
better serve our customers by shifting production and equipment
to more modern and efficient locations."

In other words, even illegals don't want to work around nigger
democrats.
