Rivian Automotive is on pace to hire 7-thousand employees at its Normal-based manufacturing facility; however, one local farmer reports the major boom is a double-edged sword. Ken Ropp is the owner of Ropp Jersey Cheese.



According to Ropp, the labor market mixed with inflation and high diesel prices hampers his bottom line. Ropp Jersey Cheese is the only on-farm cheese producer in Illinois.
