While Governor Scott Walker works to secure thousands of new jobs for Wisconsin, Democrats are working to derail the state’s continued economic success for their own political gain. After Governor Walker announced Foxconn Technology Group’s pledge to invest $10 billion in Wisconsin and create 13,000 new jobs in the state, Democrat State Senator Dana Wachs, who is running for governor, stated his opposition to the agreement.
Wachs’ decision to oppose the largest economic development project in the history of Wisconsin sends a clear message to workers that their welfare comes second to his political ambitions. While Foxconn is pledging to build “one of the largest manufacturing campuses in the nation,” creating thousands of good-paying jobs in the Badger State, Wachs wants to undermine this to score political points.
With its unemployment rate at its lowest point in decades thanks to Governor Walker’s pro-growth, pro-jobs policies, Wisconsin continues set the standard for American manufacturing. Dana Wachs has made clear his commitment to derailing Wisconsin and undoing Governor Walker’s progress. Wachs would take the state backwards.
