HUMBOLDT, Tenn. (AP) Tyson Foods Inc. plans to build a new chicken production complex in Tennessee, a $300 million project that is expected to create more than 1,500 jobs when the facility begins operations in late 2019, the company said Monday.
The new plant in Humboldt, about 85 miles northeast of Memphis, will produce pre-packaged trays of fresh chicken for retail grocery stores nationwide, the Springdale, Arkansas-based company said in a statement before a news conference. The plant will help it meet strong consumer demand for its chicken.
The announcement marks the second major economic development project Tyson has begun this year in Tennessee. In August, the company announced an $84 million expansion of operations in Union City. That project is expected to create about 300 jobs....

Tyson? Hmmm...illegal alien work sanctuary.?
People will be able to make a few buck-bucks.
“Tyson? Hmmm...illegal alien work sanctuary.?”
What I was thinking.
I won’t buy Tyson products. I don’t support the wholesale importation of illegals, which the Tyson management seems to...manage
And they worked very closely with Clintbilly when they did it.
“Tyson? Hmmm...illegal alien work sanctuary.?
What I was thinking.”
You were thinking right. All the meat industry packing plants....chicken, beef or pork are all fully staffed by illegals. If you don’t speak Spanish you can’t do business with them in TX, KS, and OK.
“And they worked very closely with Clintbilly when they did it”.
And as I remember, Clintbilly waived some state environmental/pollution regulations for them. Of course he received some “contributions” for doing so.
I have been boycotting Tyson for years. First, big Bill Clinton supporter, and, then, the thing with the illegals.
More jobs for the thousands of Somali refugees brought into the country by the Obama administration.
Ah the company that their CEO put Imams in each plant...
Must be a large illegal community there that needs work.
I don’t buy Tyson chicken or Smithfield ham for the same reason.
Not a single job for an American. Mexico should pay him for all the extra income his people return to old MeHe Co.
“You were thinking right. All the meat industry packing plants....chicken, beef or pork are all fully staffed by illegals. If you dont speak Spanish you cant do business with them in TX, KS, and OK.”
Let’s don’t forget Chobani Yogurt. They bring in Muslim ‘refugees’ sign them up for welfare and let the white people pay their salaries.
Cut welfare etal back to the ‘old standards’, run the illegals out of the country and there are plenty of jobs for Americans.
Got to stop buying into this BS of ‘jobs Americans won’t do’.
Of course ‘they’ won’t do them if ‘we’ give them to many options rather than work.
Tyson also has deorable animal standards. The animals suffer extra.
They’ll have to import their illegals to fill that many jobs or pay a lot more than the vegetable packing plants in the area
