To hear Mark Grey, director of the Iowa Center for Immigrant Leadership and Integration, listen below. What impact will the increase in the Hispanic population have on Corridor businesses? /wp-content/uploads/2013/11/Impact.mp3 What impact does the aging workforce have on Corridor businesses? /wp-content/uploads/2013/11/Immigration.mp3 As Iowa's Hispanic and non-white population continues to grow, Corridor businesses will need to take note in order to be prepared for these changing demographics. In addition to the boom in the Hispanic population, Iowa will see more African Americans, Asians and Native Americans migrating to the state. Corridor business leaders say they believe having a diverse staff is key to being able to compete in a global market. Area immigration and diversity experts added that businesses will need to examine recruitment and retention strategies when it comes to meeting the needs of a changing workforce. A changing population Latinos will continue to make up a growing share of markets for businesses, according to Mark Grey, director of the Iowa Center for Immigrant Leadership and Integration and a professor of anthropology at the University of Northern Iowa. In addition, he said they will represent an increasing percentage of the workforce. The Hispanic population is not homogeneous, though. There is increasing diversity among languages spoken and places of origin, Grey noted.

"I see this as a wake-up call" to the industry, Mark Grey told the Los Angeles Times. Grey, an associate professor of anthropology at the University of Northern Iowa, has studied the industry's shift toward immigrant labor for over a decade.
And in the rush to deregulation in the 1980s, the U.S. government largely stood by and let these changes occur, although, according to Mark Grey, a good number of government fines for safety violations have been levied.
Industrywide, the annual employee turnover in today's meatpacking plants is greater than 50 percent and could be as much as 80 percent, Grey told the Times. Companies like IBP count on this high employee "churn," not to mention the sometimes illegal status of their workforce. If an employee is illegal, he is less likely to report his injuries. But even if he is legal, a six-month wait is the industry standard for health insurance to kick in, according to Grey.
