“Today’s announcement reflects Foxconn’s continued commitment to a ‘Wisconsin First’ plan by working with companies all across the State,” said Dr. Louis Woo, Special Assistant to Foxconn Founder and CEO Terry Gou. “We are proud all of these companies have Wisconsin operations, and it is good to see that many are from Southeast Wisconsin, as well as some from the Madison-area, the Fox Valley and West Central Wisconsin. Part of the reason we selected Wisconsin is the quality of workmanship we find here. We look forward to our continued partnership with companies here as we invest $10 billion and create 13,000 jobs that will pay an average of $53,875 annually.”

    Where are the jobs up north? Nowhere to be found!! All we get is more taxes, more debt, more Scottholes in our roads and more polluted water all while Walker gives our taxes to the Chinese? For what?? Where are the jobs we were forced to pay 4.5 Billion for? Nowhere!! Once again, Big Government moocher Career Politician Scott Walker and republicans screw over Northern Wisconsin.
