Wilson-Sinclair Company
Wilson-Sinclair (later Wilson Foods) was at one time the largest processor of fresh pork in the United States. Based in Oklahoma City, the company filed for bankruptcy in 1983 with the unusual goal of using bankruptcy to reduce its unionized labor costs. The company said wages and benefits had placed it at a competitive disadvantage. Though the company eventually emerged from bankruptcy, it was acquired by the Doskocil Companies in 1988.
