Anyone who thinks Foxconn is going to build a Factory in Wisconsin, need only look at the promises they made to Pennsylvania. Promises that go back to 2013.

Foxconn’s history of broken promises casts a shadow on Wisconsin news

News that Foxconn is planning to build a plant in Wisconsin was announced to some fanfare late Wednesday by Gov. Scott Walker and President Donald Trump.

Not everyone is cheering.

The Taiwanese electronics manufacturer is best known for making Apple’s AAPL, -0.84% iPhone at factories in China, and Trump has been vocal about his desire to bring those jobs back to the U.S.

Foxconn’s chief executive, Terry Gou, joined Trump and Walker, along with Sen. Ron Johnson and House Speaker Paul Ryan, who represents the district in which the plant will be constructed, to unveil the news.

The plant will make liquid-crystal-display screens for TVs and other products, and will employ 3,000 workers initially, with the intent of growing that to 13,000 jobs over time, the officials said. Walker said the plant represents a $10 billion investment, with the state having chipped in a $3 billion, 15-year package of tax incentives.

Gou said in January, without offering details, that he was considering a display-panel manufacturing plant in the U.S. that would create up to 50,000 jobs.

But the details are important, given Gou’s history of making and breaking promises in numerous countries and regions over the years, including in the U.S. A pledge to invest $30 million in a factory in central Pennsylvania in 2013 was also greeted with much ballyhoo, as reported by the Washington Post.

Four years later, the factory has still not been built, to the disappointment of state officials. They are not alone. In 2014, Foxconn promised a $1 billion investment in Indonesia, which has still not happened, according to the Washington Post. A pledge to invest $5 billion in Vietnam in 2007 has also failed to materialize, nor has the company met its promises for India.

Obama scared them away, like many businesses.

Trump is interested in building businesses instead of just whining like the leftists do.

Why do you continue to post "fake" crap on this forum? You contribute nothing by making these false claims.
Then, on May 17 and 18, some 35 Foxconn people spent two days touring Wisconsin in a coach rented by WEDC. Braun said they visited multiple sites in multiple counties — “less than 50 but more than 10.”

But Foxconn had its eye on southeastern Wisconsin from the beginning. “Huge waves” of people from the company began to roll through the corner of the state, Paetsch said.

“I mean, there have been hundreds of Foxconn personnel that have been in southeastern Wisconsin,” he said. “… Some of them are here indefinitely.”
Many were tasked with evaluating potential plant sites, the assembly of which has been the chief mission of M7 and the local groups with which it is working.

yeah, because you know, designing and engineering that project, getting it thru the governmental red tape... all of that normally takes about 10 days. Then, the construction, which typically takes about 20 days.
What a stupid post.
I worked on a highway in Florida for over 5 YEARS just getting the design approved by the state, because there was federal money involved.
Then once approved, took a couple years to begin construction and took well over a year to build... all 2 miles of it. AND it was an existing road with no right of way taking required.
