One of President Donald Trump’s key campaign promises was to add American jobs by incentivizing domestic companies to keep their operations in the United States.
Though Congress has been dragging its feet when it comes to economy-boosting tax cuts and reform legislation, President Trump’s administration continues to push for economic growth through by cutting regulations and increasing consumer confidence.
Fox Business reported earlier this week that Tyson Foods, one of the biggest food conglomerates in the world, will be building a massive new plant in Tennessee.
According to Conservative Tribune, “the plant will cost an estimated $300 million to build and will provide for at least 1,500 new jobs processing more than 1.25 million chickens per week. The plant is expected to generate upwards of $150 million in additional revenue for the state.”
“This project will enable us to provide even more fresh chicken to consumers across the country,” Tyson Foods president and CEO Tom Hayes said in a news release. “As one of the world’s leading protein companies, we continue to raise the world’s expectations of how much good food can do.”
