Migrant Hiring Push Has Tyson Foods Reeling

A cheap-labor employment pipeline has been created, and American multinationals are all-in.

American meat processing giant Tyson Foods is about to get the Bud Light treatment. As the backlash plays out, a valuable window is being opened onto the ugly reality that the massive illegal immigration “migrant” crisis in this nation is fueled to a startling degree by US-based multinational corporations’ quenchless desire for cheap labor. The PR nightmare for Tyson began with an overtly friendly March 11 Bloomberg News article headlined, “Tyson Is Hiring New York Immigrants for Jobs No One Else Wants.”

“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 piece reads. “The meatpacker already employs about 42,000 immigrants among its 120,000-strong US workforce.”

Here’s the quote that has launched an avalanche of boycott pledges from outraged Americans: “We would like to employ another 42,000 if we could find them,” Tyson Associate Director of Human Resources Garrett Dolan said. Dolan “leads Tyson’s efforts to eliminate employment barriers such as immigration status,” the article approvingly points out.

That’s no mere opinion. Bloomberg is not a neutral news agent; it is a comrade in the Tent Partnership endeavor. “Bloomberg LP, the parent company of Bloomberg News, has partnered with Tent to support refugee populations,” the Bloomberg author at least has the honesty to admit.

Tyson Taking Heat

To add to the public relations calamity, Tyson is closing a pork plant in Perry, Iowa, and laying off some 1,200 American workers. The shutdown was announced the same day that the Bloomberg article came out.

Enormously popular and smaller conservative online voices alike have called for a consumer boycott of Tyson. “It’s time to boycott Tyson Foods. Tyson Foods is laying off American workers  and hiring ‘migrants’ in their place. Infuriating,” a typical X post read. “I will never buy another Tyson product, just like I will never buy another Anheuser-Busch or Budweiser product,” poster Jake Slade vowed. Slade has 24,000 followers. His Tyson blast received 3,000 likes and 2,600 reposts.

Those eager to join the boycott need to know one thing: It doesn’t stop there. The Tent Partnership organization that spurred Tyson to make its public pledge to hire tens of thousands illegals has more big-brand America-based companies under its wing than you can shake a Bud Light can at.

It’s a Very Big Tent Indeed

“Tyson Foods is part of Tent US, exploring opportunities to help refugees enter the labor market, including through employment or job preparation,” the company’s page on the Tent website states.

Creating a migrant pipeline to major American corporations is the core mission of the Tent Partnership. “The US has welcomed hundreds of thousands of forcibly displaced people from Latin America over the past decade – including from Venezuela, Cuba, Nicaragua, and the Northern Triangle – and Tent’s Hispanic Refugee Mentorship Program will provide these newcomers with professional mentorship opportunities,” the organization declared in a 2023 press release. “By engaging employees at major companies – primarily through Hispanic employee resource groups – as mentors, this new initiative will accelerate the economic integration of Hispanic refugees in the US.”

The Tyson logo appears above the release on the Tent website. Other corporate logos alongside it include those for Bank of America, Diageo North America, Google, Hilton hotels, Marriott, and Uber, as well as Big Pharma behemoths Merck and Pfizer.

No more Tyson chicken or Bud Light? Well, if you want to add Diageo to your no-buy list, its well-known alcoholic beverage brands include Guinness stout beer, Ketel One and Smirnoff vodkas, Captain Morgan rum, Johnny Walker Scotch, and Baileys Irish cream liqueur.

But wait, there’s more.

“The Tent Partnership for Refugees is made up of more than 400 major multinational companies committed to hiring and economically integrating refugees in other ways,” the organization crows.

Other Tent members include American Airlines, American Express, AT&T, Avis, Citi, Coca-Cola EuroPacific Partners, CVS, Delta Airlines, Doordash, Ebay, Facebook, General Electric, Hormel Foods, KFC, Kraft Heinz, McDonald’s, Netflix, Pepsico, Popeyes, Shell Oil, Subway, Taco Bell, and UPS.

The Tent Partnership works closely with the World Economic Forum to “resolve” the global migration crisis by helping to usher in tens of millions of foreigners into the nations of the West.

“The Refugee Employment Alliance was developed in collaboration with the World Economic Forum’s Community of Chief Human Resources Officers, which includes more than 120 CHROs and equivalents from leading multinational companies globally,” an April 2023 post on the WEF website states.

Klaus Schwab’s outfit stressed that the Ukraine war “highlighted the collective desire to scale business support for the economic integration of refugees globally.”

The Tent Partnership is a proud partner of this organized effort. A long quote by founder Ulukaya is prominently displayed on the WEF post.

“I am proud that the Tent Partnership for Refugees is partnering with the World Economic Forum as they kick off their new Refugee Employment and Employability Initiative,” Ulukaya says. “Building on our years of experience working with the European business community, Tent… can further develop companies’ refugee hiring programs across the continent and help accelerate the economic integration of Ukrainians and all refugees as they settle in their new communities.”

Again, it must be stressed: an efficient network is being created in Western nations by financially powerful NGOs to funnel newly arrived “refugees” and “migrants” to large supra-national corporations.

In its March 11 article praising Tyson, Tent member Bloomberg did not even try to hide that the work being offered is miserable and exploitative. The “jobs no one else wants” portion of the headline makes that clear.

As Liberty Nation has repeatedly documented, meat processing jobs are some of the most grueling and dangerous in the nation. In January, Americans were horrified to learn of the death of a 16-year-old child illegally working at a Mississippi slaughterhouse that supplies chicken to Chick-fil-A. Duvan Perez obtained employment at the plant run by Georgia-based processing goliath Mar-Jac Poultry by presenting himself as a 32-year-old adult male. Last July, he was killed on the job when he was sucked into a machine he was deep-cleaning.

Tyson HR exec Dolan acknowledged to Bloomberg that it is difficult to find Americans desperate enough to fill such positions. Who wants to perform potentially lethal manual labor for low pay?

“We’re recognizing there’s not a lot of people that are going to be working labor-manufacturing jobs that are American,” Dolan said. An overwhelming percentage of hires “are going to come from refugees and immigrants, so we’re now in the business of strategically thinking that through.”

A host of respected big-name America-based corporations is right there with them.
