Chicago bakery loses 800 workers after immigration raid
CHICAGO — A Chicago bakery lost 800 workers to an immigration raid earlier this year.
Bloomberg reports that the Cloverhill Bakery on the Northwest Side, lost more than a third of its employees who didn’t have sufficient documentation.
The Swiss-based company makes hamburger buns for McDonald’s and other chains.
A spokesman said the bakery is struggling to replace staff, is facing pressure to raise wages, and has lost $21 million due to the disruption.
