Iowa Town Bracing For Closure Of Tyson Foods Plant

Cherokee, IA

One small northwest Iowa town is preparing to deal with the loss of 450 jobs this fall when the Tyson Foods plant in Cherokee closes, and business owners are worrying about what it will mean.

The Tyson plant is the second-largest employer in Cherokee.

Cherokee Mayor Mark Murphy says he was surprised by Friday's announcement of the plant closing, and the city will try to help plant workers find other jobs in the area.

Linda McClaren says she knows her American Theater will be affected because going to the movies is something people do when they have extra money to spend.
