Tyson Foods accelerates change to adjust to market. Company seeks more empowered, agile and accountable organization.
WATCH: Sheriff Tony Thompson tells @maddow the massive spike in COVID-19 cases in his county is due to Tyson Foods' "inept, reactionary and dysfunctional responses" to calls to shut down its meat processing plant in Waterloo, Iowa.
11,000 workers at Tyson Foods got COVID & 36 died while managers made bets on how many would get sick. The working conditions were so bad they “shook” a local sheriff “to his core.” No, I will not vote to give corporations a license to harm workers. We must hold them accountable.
While the owner of Tyson Foods became $600 million richer during the pandemic, 11,000 of his workers got COVID-19 because they were forced back to work in unsafe and unhealthy plants as managers placed bets on how many would get sick. We must end this disgusting corporate greed.
11,000 coronavirus cases are tied to Tyson Foods, Smithfield Foods and JBS. It is our meat processing workers and other so-called "low-level" employees who now face the greatest risk of illness and death. I don't care where you work. Our job is to keep all people alive.
Massive corporations like Smithfield Foods and Tyson drive family farmers off their land, abuse animals and destroy the environment. It is time to break up these agribusiness monopolies.
The reopening of Tyson Foods' largest U.S. pork plant came the same day health officials announced that 1,031 of the plant's estimated 2,800 employees have tested positive for the coronavirus.
Tyson Foods is warning that "millions of pounds of meat" will disappear from the supply chain as the coronavirus pandemic pushes food processing plants to close, leading to product shortages in grocery stores across the country.
