Dana Wachs calls out Gov. Walker’s request to spend millions more attract out-of-state workers for Foxconn
"Gov. Walker is spending taxpayer money like he’s got holes in his pockets."
“Gov. Walker is spending taxpayer money like he’s got holes in his pockets. First, Walker signs of the dotted line with Foxconn and agrees to pay Chairman Gou $3 billion of our hard-earned money. Now he wants to spend millions more to recruit workers from other states to move to Wisconsin to work at this factory. What do they plan to do with the $3 billion they are taking out of our wallets? This has to stop.
“Gov. Walker sold a bill of goods to the Wisconsin public by saying it would create new jobs for Wisconsinites. Apparently, what he really means was that the jobs would go to workers from Chicago. Wisconsin deserves better than Gov. Walker.
“We can grow the economy and create more good-paying jobs for Wisconsinites without giving away $3 billion. We can raise the wages of Wisconsin workers. It can be done, but this is not the way. Gov. Walker is hoping this corporate giveaway is his Hail Mary pass, but, believe me, Walker is no Aaron Rodgers.”
