To help tackle a shortage of workers, the biggest meat company in the U.S., Tyson Foods, has announced it will pay for its employees to go to college.

The company said it will spend $60 million to provide free education to its 120,000 employees at 35 universities across the country beginning this summer.

The initiative will cover all costs including tuition, books, and other fees.

Tyson Foods is the latest in a long list of companies offering more incentives to attract – and keep – workers in a pandemic-era labor shortage.
