Leaders of Foxconn Technology Group and the University of Wisconsin-Madison are planning to make what they call a "major announcement" on campus Monday. U.S. News and World Report Aug. 27, 2018, at 9:21 a.m.
Wonder what it is?
- Wisconsin taxpayers cough up between $3 billion and $4 billion ?
- Wisconsin localities use eminent domain to take people's property and make way for FOXCONN ?
- Maybe FOXCONN gets all the water it wants from Lake Michigan ?
- FOXCONN gets exempted from all state environmental rules and regulations ?
- Wisconsin Transportation Funds are diverted from statewide infrastructure to support FOXCONN needs ?
- Wisconsin gets 13,000 jobs -- maybe in five years ? What kind of jobs ?
- Walker gets political cover for keeping Wisconsin at the end of the line when it comes to recovery -- compare to Minnesota or Illinois ?
Nope -- those deals or promises have already been done! Be interesting to see what really happens!
Oh! UW gets $100 million, maybe ?
