White House to announce Apple-supplier Foxconn manufacturing plant in Wisconsin on Wednesday

No exact location for the plant has been chosen — but the area of southeast Wisconsin between Milwaukee and Chicago is under consideration, according to a source.

A source said that seven states were considered for the expansion, but Wisconsin appears to be a preliminary winner, and Ohio is a contender. About 10,000 jobs could be created.

The Wall Street Journal reported that Foxconn may be eyeing a new U.S. plant for display panels.

Foxconn is also known as Hon Hai Precision, a longtime supplier to Apple and other electronics companies that has come under scrutiny in the past over labor practices in China. It is unclear if Apple is involved in Wednesday's announcement.

The announcement would come on the heels of a Wall Street Journal interview with Trump, where he said he had spoken to Apple CEO Tim Cook about three U.S. factories. Apple has yet to comment on Trump's remarks. Cook told Jim Cramer on CNBC's "Mad Money" in May it would start a $1 billion fund to promote advanced manufacturing jobs in the United States.

With its wide network of developers, Apple has already created two million jobs in the United States, according to Cook. Apple supplier Corning told CNBC last week that it would "immediately" invest $500 million and create 1,000 new jobs in the United States, but those jobs are related to medical devices.

Scott Walker was reported to say "If Foxconn is going to be driving employees to suicide, they are going to be Wisconsonites, God Dam It! And where's my US/Canada wall? I want a fucking wall!!!"

Concerns are increasing among lawmakers and others in Wisconsin over what incentives the state may offer to become the first U.S. home of Taiwanese electronics giant Foxconn.

---------

Eliminate the minimum wage so workers can compete with the Chinese labor, just as the Founding Fathers intended!!

Wisconsin (taxpayers) and/or the Fed Gov't (taxpayers) will be tax-subsidizing this

"if it's built facility"

To the tune of

$240,000 to $307,000 per job

For mainly assembly line or station jobs

Having median salary estimated to be $17 per hour

BRILLIANT!

These types of projects are the worst type of corporate welfare.

Foxconn gets free labor for nearly 10 years and taxpayers pay for it and much more.

At least Carrier in Indiana ONLY got 7 to 13 million from taxpayers to safe 700 to 900 jobs that NOW ENDED UP IN MEXICO ANYWAYS.

MAGA&WIN TILL IT HURTS!!!

Maybe 10,000 jobs to build the factory. But what happens after that? It will be all robots. An engineer and a couple of security guards may be the only humans.

The place will be filled with illegals and the ACLU will sue them for shooting bench workers who fail to make targets. The factory managers will be 'retired' PRC executive officers who delight in crucifying Mexican catholics to make examples of slackers.

Yeah, it's amazing what a $3 billion dollar gift to a company will buy.

http://money.cnn.com/2017/09/18/news/scott-walker-signs-foxconn-deal/index.html "That means the state will pay between $15,000 and $19,000 dollars per job per year, assuming 13,000 positions are actually created."

So, companies are willing to hire Americans if the American tax payer pays for their salaries. How is this different from having more government workers? The government might as well be the official employer. At least that way the American people also own the profits from the factory.

"The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources approved a request to divert 7 million gallons of water a day to the area where Foxconn is building its new plant."

" (the rest of the water will be treated and then returned to the lake basin)."

No corporation has ever returned polluted water back to the environment?
At least all the profits will stay in the U.S. to MAGA?

Foxconn is an evil corporation and Scott Walker is a dipshit. Still, dipshits often get votes for getting results, even when they give away the farm for a few pigs.

Wow, you really debunked all that. Apparently Chrysler and GM didn't get huge bailouts they weren't required to spend in the USA and everything else under Obama.

And the money wasn't paid back, either, even according to Left biased fact checkers.

Short memory bob. Because I think everyone still remembers all those idiotic blunders and subsidies into "green" that just did not pencil out.
