Hawley Aims To End Meat Packing Monopoly

Missouri U-S Senator Josh Hawley is sponsoring a bill he says will put a stop to large meatpacking companies operating as a monopoly. He told Missourinet that Tyson Food’s recent decision to close two chicken plants in southern Missouri amounts to corporate greed:

But Tyson executives blame the moves on lower profits and reduced demand for chicken from consumers, according to Reuters. Hawley’s bill would remove incentives for large corporations to buy up smaller meat producers, which he says eliminates competition and drives up costs.
