U.S. Senator Ben Sasse released the following statement after Tyson Foods suspended officials at an Iowa plant following allegations that plant managers bet on the number of workers that would be infected by Coronavirus.

"These are some horrific allegations, and Tyson is right to launch an investigation. There appears to be systemic and cultural failures that allowed mismanagement — and the virus — to run rampant. The hardworking men and women on these lines deserve better because they’re doing work that literally helps feed the world."
