“We can now add Tyson Foods to the long list of businesses that are fleeing Illinois for a better business climate elsewhere. As Tyson shutters its Chicago and Downers Grove facilities for good, they become further proof that the anti-business policies put in place by Illinois Democrats are causing irreparable harm to our state’s economy. Leaders at Tyson Foods follow economic giants Citadel, Boeing, Caterpillar, Cryptocurrency Exchange FTX, and Highland Ventures in taking their businesses and jobs to other, more business-friendly states. How many businesses must leave Illinois before Democrats recognize the harm their policies are causing to our jobs climate? How many more Illinoisans must lose their jobs?”

—State Senator Craig Wilcox (R-McHenry), Incumbent Candidate for State Senate in the 32nd District
