Foxconn promised to create 13,000 "permanent" Wisconsin jobs. But the company changed the type of factory it will build, downsizing to an automated plant that will only require 3,000 employees.
Taxpayers will pay between $220,000 and +$1,000,000 per job. https://t.co/fllXF6A7UD

The price tag (in the form of tax incentives) for Foxconn's big Wisconsin factory keeps getting steeper.
The promises for job creation keep getting fuzzier.
