HyLife will provide transportation if H-2B visa workers must return home

The bankrupt HyLife food processing plant continues to operate at a reduced rate as it heads towards a target auction date of May 26.

The company informs that they have cut work by 25 percent, due to a declining number of hogs coming into the plant.

In an email on Tuesday, HyLife director of marketing and communications Kevin Geisheimer stated, “Our entire Windom team remains employed, including our H-2B employees. We have shared a list of possible employment options for our H-2B employees. If opportunities are unavailable and the plant closes before our H-2B work authorization ends, HyLife will provide transportation for a safe return home. Throughout this process, HyLife is committed to working within the framework from the Department of Labor (DOL) and United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).”
