Missouri helps 2,200 Tyson employees set to lose their job this month

Tyson is on track to close two of its chicken processing plants in Missouri this month – putting about 22-hundred workers out of a job. 

The plants are in southeast Missouri’s Dexter and southwest Missouri’s Noel. 

Tim Dunville, with the Missouri Department of Higher Ed and Workforce Development, says job fairs have been going on three days a week in Noel and will continue through October 13.

According to Dunville:  “Down in Noel, they’re bringing in three employers each day – Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and the resources like for unemployment, you know, other state agencies, Voc Rehab, and the other local agencies that want to participate to help these workers find new positions or some other assistance that they may need,” he says.

The state is in Dexter on Tuesdays and Thursdays through October 12 with its mobile job center to help workers find jobs.
