Eliminating 230 salaried people from pilgrims 160 from Mt pleasant and pittsburg.70 from other areas throughout company. They will get severance I think they should get what they gave the growers that they closed down no buyout, no compensation,no hope for any future that is what they deserve nothing more.

I understand Don Jackson has already left for Colorado leaving behind "ole" Bo. JBS did remove Bo from his position of vice chairman of the board and fired the Chief Financial Officer. I just wonder when they completely leave Mt. Pleasant if the residents will still think so highly of "ole" Bo. If I didn't know better, I would think Don Jackson pulled a good one on old Bo Pilgrim. Sounds as if Don didn't waste any time "'bout gettin out of dodge". Pilgrim's Pride - just another company owned by another overseas corporation. BOYCOTT PILGRIM'S PRIDE products.

I wonder if the people if Mt. Pleasant and Pittsburg Texas are still so proud of Bo Pilgrim after selling them out to a forign company. Bo sold his ass for the allmighty dollar and is now putting the screws to the very people that supported him for so long. Just goes to show you, you can not trust anybody, I wonder if Cluckingham Palace will be up for sale? I hope the people of Pittsburg run ole Bo out of town.
