Jun 10, 2012 Full story: The Kansas City Star 31

The Elk River makes the turn under the overhanging cliffs at the edge of this Ozarks town to flow just below the quaint business district.On a recent afternoon, customers shopped for fresh eggs and calf feed in Landon’s Feed & Seed.

This is pretty typical of Tyson Foods.
They move into a community preaching about all the jobs they are going to create but then bring in the foreigners, many illegal if not all.

I have seen this done with chicken plants, meat packing plants etc, i have also noticed a lot of recalls with various outbreaks of diseases and tainted food.

I really don't see America lasting another 50 years without a revolution.

Sorry,the 1950's left 50 plus years ago. White bread has to make room for wheat, rye, multigrain and a whole lot of other loaves now.

The left and the right can agree on that much.

Those aren't jobs at those animal harvesting factories, anyway. Not in any real sense.

As a matter of fact, a LOT. Tysons in Noel had a walkout by well over a hundred Somali workers recently. Word spread fast, locally, thru facebook and others.. and the next morning, there was a line, I kid you not, over a block long waiting to put in applications. Two hours later, however, they rehired all the Somalians after they had said the previous day that if they walked out they were all fired. There was absolutely NO shortage of Americans wanting those jobs. In a county where the median household income is HALF the national average, a lot of people would LOVE to have a job that starts at better than 9 bucks an hour with medical benefits. But it is easier to control employees, and treat them like crap, when they know that if you fire them, and they do not find a new job really fast, your butt is headed back to Somalia.

And unlike the other commenters, I KNOW what I am talking about, because I LIVE in the town this article is about, saw the line of applicants with my own eyes, and know many of them personally.

I hear that all the time too, and truth be told, most of those crying wouldn't "take" a job if it was hand delivered it to them.

Sorta like the woman with a 24/7 "headache" who crys another took her man.

Ah well, unnecessary since that is who I was talking about too. Of the several hundred people I saw lined up for the jobs there... virtually NONE were immigrants. MOST were people who were born and raised right here in Mac County and I have known them all my life.

And "off the trail" does not have a clue what he is talking about either. Tyson's has mounted a campaign to REPLACE citizen employees with immigrants, legal or otherwise... they do not care which.

Another incident I am personally aware of was when one central american male was fired from the facility where my wife works for sexual harassment (he was grabbing women by their asses and breasts). Within a couple weeks, the SAME GUY was hired at another Tyson's facility, under new papers and name, 20 miles away.. and 3 months later, he transfers right back to the facility my wife works at. But Tyson's managed to cover their butt from sexual harassment suit, by being able to play dumb about who they rehired, when they know damned well who he is.

Yip, Mac County, you are right on the money. I've known of Tyson's shenanigans for years and they will only fire a few token illegals now and then just to keep themselves looking like they really care about doing what's right. If that was a white boy, he would've been in jail and probably on the sexual offenders list.

But one other point, Tyson has a policy of only hiring someone three times. Some of the people applying could have worn out their welcome. But Hudson didn't care. He just neeeded people to get his chicken out the door.

You know what I find ineresting?

The illegal immigrants where I live all gather near the 7-ll store in the morning looking for work......and they get $100/day for 8 hours (tax free mind you). Why aren't the various other people that are looking for work or on welfare gathering there as well? Heck, if I were broke, or close to it, I'd try to find some work.

yep. noel is crap why pretend its not. i moved overseas 10 years ago. i went through the noel school system in the 80's. then returned in the late 90's. it was like a third world country. very sad. it should be a crime to take a 99% white town and reduce it to 50% in a decade. the govt. and tysons destroyed a mayberry like town and now its a ghetto like town.
and somalians really now theres a brilliant race. hey i done gots me an idea lets get people with the lowest iQ in africa and stick them in a historically white small town in missouri. duh!

You know your culture from your trash
You know your plastic from your cash
When I lose sight of the track
You know the way back
But I know you

You know your stripper from your paint
You know your sinner from your saint
Whenever heaven's doors are shut
You kick them open but
I know you
