More on Mr. Chobani Yogurt’s plans for rural America

The other day we told you about Hamdi Ulukaya, the billionaire Turkish founder of Chobani Yogurt, and his trip to Davos, Switzerland (World Economic Forum) this week to promote the idea that big business should hire more refugee laborers as he has for his US yogurt plants.  (Refugee resettlement contractors have found him plenty of refugee workers in Twin Falls, Idaho!).

Walk on by! That is what I do in the dairy aisle. See this 2013 story about Chobani’s mold problem. http://abcnews.go.com/Business/chobani-pulls-greek-yogurt-off-sheves/story?id=20158308

Leo Hohmann at World Net Daily has a more lengthy detailed report on Ulukaya’s proposal.

Hohmann reports that a number of companies have already signed on with a plan to give more work and other goodies to immigrant workers over American workers.  They include:  Ikea, MasterCard, Airbnb, LinkedIn, Western Union and UPS.  

I hate to see this list, especially UPS, because where I live it is an important source of work for low-skilled AMERICANS!

Be sure to check out the reaction to the story at WND.  As of this writing, there are over 1,100 comments.

If I lived in Twin Falls I would find every connection to Mr. Chobani with local and state elected officials, the College of Southern Idaho, Jan Reeves, the local newspaper and the resettlement contractors working there and expose them!
