Scott Walker’s $4.5 billion taxpayer giveaway to Foxconn is the largest handout to a foreign corporation in U.S. history. This deal has come at the expense of Wisconsin schools, roads, and priorities for working families; our roads are 2nd worst in the nation and our schools are funded at lower levels now than they were in 2010-11.
Under the best-case scenario, it will be at least 25 years until Wisconsinites break even on their investment. And that’s the best-case scenario.
You deserve to have your voice heard on this deal. Sen. Patty Schachtner and Sen. Janet Bewley are hosting two town halls in Rice Lake and Amery to listen to Wisconsinites and help local communities understand how the deal will affect them.
Rice Lake Public Library – 2 E Marshall St
2:30-4pm on Thursday, August 2
Amery Area Public Library – 225 Scholl Ct.
5:30-7pm on Thursday, August 2
RSVP on Facebook
Can’t make either of these events? Stay tuned for future Foxconn town halls!
