Tyson Foods Inc. became the latest large company to announce its
departure from Chicago, continuing a trend in the city that many have
argued is the result of the city's skyrocketing rates of crime and
threatens to do harm to its most vulnerable populations.
Billionaire Ken Griffin announced earlier this year that he was moving
his hedge-fund firm, Citadel, out of Chicago because of the rising
crime, a move that was also made by mining equipment giant Caterpillar
and Boeing, the world's largest aerospace company.
"You're talking about a situation where you have a hollowed out
economy, where you have businesses leaving, there are no jobs,"
Heritage Foundation senior research fellow in the Center for Health and
Welfare Policy Robert Moffit told Fox News Digital last month. "And the
people who are desperately hurt by this are mostly low income and black
and minority residents who suffer the most from this high crime."
