ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) - Some processing plant recruiters have been mining Aberdeen for workers after about 260 Northern Beef Packers employees were laid off as the company filed for bankruptcy protection.
Turkey Valley Farms was in Aberdeen this past week recruiting employees for its turkey processing plant in Marshall, Minn.
Chris Janisch of Work Connections says she spoke with 15 people about job opportunities and Turkey Valley Farms may hire some of them after reviewing their qualifications.
Other large processing plants have been advertising job openings in the area.
