We have talked a lot about Foxconn and its ever changing plans in Wisconsin. Today, another kick at the cat. What began as the largest subsidy package for a foreign company by any state ever seemingly remains in limbo. First, we were told that the plant would make flat screens for big tv’s and employ 13,000 people. Then Foxconn said it wouldn’t build anything at the Southeast Wisconsin plant it is building, but rather would serve as a research and technology hub. Then, after a chat with the President, company leaders did an about-face and declared it would in fact be building things when it opens its plant. Of course, the devil is in the details, and details appear to be in very short supply. What is becoming increasingly clear is that no one, apparently including Foxconn, knows just what is going to happen with this facility. We don’t know what they are going to build, if anything. We don’t know how big the plant will be, or when it will open. We don’t know how many people the plant will employ. Despite all these uncertainties, Wisconsin taxpayers remain on the hook for possibly billions of dollars in corporate subsidies. Wisconsin taxpayers deserve to know just what we are getting for our money. Those who crafted this corporate giveaway should insist on a sit-down with Foxconn leaders. They should demand to know the company’s plans, and be willing to change the state’s commitment if their plans have changed. Wisconsin taxpayers deserve transparency, and right now there is very little of that.
