It seems official now. The so-called eighth wonder of the world is a bust. Foxconn, which promised 13,000 jobs and a $10 billion investment, is never going to hit that mark. The Taiwanese company was promised billions in state taxpayer money in exchange for all that development and all those jobs. They built a few buildings, bought a few more, but now they have begun to sell part of their property in Mt. Pleasant, which we were told by former President Donald Trump and former Governor Scott Walker would become the eighth wonder of the world. Now, Microsoft has bought some of Foxconn’s Wisconsin property. At least somebody will work there. Instead of the 13,000 jobs promised, Foxconn has delivered only about 1000. That big orb they built? It is apparently used for storage and can be rented as a reception hall. Some say Foxconn never really planned to build there, that the company was simply trying to appease Trump and avoid threatened tariffs. That is not clear. But it is clear that Foxconn is a failure and will never put 13,000 people to work. Its empty buildings are a monument to more failed political promises.
