Yankton Plant Courts Laid-off Aberdeen Workers

ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) – A beef processing plant in Yankton is courting laid-off workers at the Northern Beef Packers plant in Aberdeen.

The Aberdeen plant announced late last month that it was laying off 108 of its 420 employees until it can raise more money for operations.

The American News reports that representatives from the Cimpl’s plant in Yankton conducted job interviews in Aberdeen on Tuesday and had more scheduled Wednesday.

Cimpl’s is owned by Wisconsin-based American Foods Group, the fifth-largest beef processor in the nation. Spokeswoman Ellen Paulson says jobs are available at Cimpl’s and at other American Foods Group plants in the Midwest.

Northern Beef has said it hopes to call back laid-off workers by late July. Company officials declined comment on the recruiting for the Cimpl’s plant.
