Tyson Foods Latest Large Business to Flee Chicago Amid Crime Wave


Recommended Posts

"Tyson Foods is the latest major corporation to flee Chicago, like Boeing and Caterpillar, due to out of control crime rates under its Democrat mayor, Lori Lightfoot.

Chicago has faced a number of corporate departures in recent months, almost three years into the city’s unprecedented crime wave.

Shootings, robberies, and other forms of violence have skyrocketed to levels not seen in decades, after Lightfoot became mayor in 2019.

Crime has risen in every category throughout Chicago, a fact which many local businesses are taking into consideration when looking to the future."


"Meanwhile, Ken Griffin, CEO of Citadel and a prominent Chicago billionaire investor and a vocal critic of Illinois’s governor, J.B. Pritzker, recently moved his hedge fund to Miami, Florida, due to the crime rates in Chicago.

Griffen bought a new record-breaking $106.9 million waterfront headquarters in Miami upon announcing his plan to move his 1,000-member team to Florida, after three decades in Illinois.

“If people aren’t safe here, they’re not going to live here,” Griffin told The Wall Street Journal in April."

Coupled with rampant inflation, declining corporate tax revenue, homelessness, high unemployment, and crime, Chicago is facing a fight for its survival."
