Foxconn Amendment Keeps Floodgates Open for Wisconsin to Pay $3 Billion to Hire Illinois Workers

MADISON, Wis. — One Wisconsin Now Executive Director Scot Ross released the following statements in response to Assembly Republicans’ latest version of a $3 billion taxpayer handout to a foreign corporation. Assembly Republicans announced they will hold a committee vote Monday on what would be the largest handout to a foreign company by a state in American history.

“Thanks to Scott Walker and the Assembly Republicans, Wisconsin taxpayers are about to get a $3 billion case of the Mondays and at least a 25-year financial hangover.

“Scott Walker’s been a politician for his entire adult life and he knows that any answer other than ‘yes’ is ‘no.’ Does it guarantee Wisconsin tax dollars only go to support Wisconsin jobs? It does not, in any way, shape or form.”
