Foxconn reality check

Foxconn reality check

We are joined by state representative Jonathan Brostoff to discuss Gov. Evers’ conclusion that Foxconn is unlikely to hire 13,000 workers and his decision to renegotiate the contract. We review the new UW-Madison study that found accepting Medicaid money would save state residents $100 million a year, on top of savings to the state savings. We also talk about the Trump MAGA rally coming to Green Bay, the Koch Brothers’ “astroturf” state budget campaign, and Congressman Sean Duffy dishonestly sneering at the Green New Deal.
