We must band together to make sure this opportunity does not pass us by. The Wisconn Valley Jobs Coalition is a collection of businesses, entrepreneurs, workers, and community leaders supporting legislation to bring Foxconn Technology Group to Wisconsin.
Foxconn’s investment is unprecedented. This is the largest single economic development project in the history of Wisconsin, and the largest “greenfield” investment on new ground by a foreign company in U.S. history. It will transform our economy.
Foxconn will help create tens of thousands of jobs. Foxconn plans to invest $10 billion and create 13,000 jobs, on top of the 10,000 construction jobs needed for the project and the 22,000 ripple effect jobs that come with it from additional economic activity.
Foxconn will mean high-paying, family-supporting jobs for hard-working families. The average wage of workers at Foxconn’s Wisconsin campus will be $53,875, plus benefits, and they’ll be working high-tech manufacturing jobs.
Foxconn will revolutionize Wisconsin’s economy. The innovation Foxconn brings will make Wisconsin the center of a new wave of high-tech manufacturing with products made in America, right here in Wisconsin.
Foxconn means opportunities for scores of other businesses and organizations. There will be suppliers, spin-off companies, and even possibilities for new research in sectors like health care that will spur further innovation and growth. Wisconsin companies should be a part of this.
We’re headed in the right direction – let’s meet this historic moment. Business and community leaders in Wisconsin have worked hard to get Wisconsin headed in the right direction. Now is the time to keep moving forward – not turn back from this historic moment.
