The Wisconsin Foxconn scam


Bloomberg with a huge article on this


I read that one too. Very informative.


Under the terms Walker negotiated, each job at the Mount Pleasant factory is projected to cost the state at least $219,000 in tax breaks and other incentives.

Walker should be in jail. The state of Wisconsin would have been better off finding 13,000 unemployed citizens and just given them $200k/year. Or better yet given 26,000 citizens $100k/year. But, you know, socialism.


The kicker is, when they signed the deal they knew that WI didn’t even have 13k available employees. And that many of the employees would be commuting from Illinois.
