Tyson sued over illegal immigration issue

CHATTANOOGA (AP) — A lawsuit that contends Tyson Foods depressed wages by hiring illegal immigrants and should pay damages to legal workers will go to trial in March 2008, a judge said Monday in a conference with attorneys.

The lawsuit contends Tyson hired illegal immigrants at eight plants since April 1998.

U.S. District Judge Curtis L. Collier set the March 3, 2008, trial date after agreeing to allow an attorney for the world’s largest meat company time to file a motion challenging the makeup of the class of plaintiffs before the court involves a mediator to attempt reaching a settlement.

“My client is not inclined to participate in anything that would lead to a settlement,” said Tyson’s lead attorney, Tom Green of Washington, D.C. Green said the legal fight is “about costing Tyson millions of dollars to be in a case we believe we ought not to be in.”

I agree with Mr Green in one respect… Tyson Foods is in a case they should not be in… They should have hired LEGAL workers.
