In response to the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation spending $1 million to woo Chicago residents to Wisconsin--wrong, wrong, wrong! Who thought this up? Someone missing their friends in Chicago? Someone with ties to the advertising community?
Taxpayers are not responsible to do the recruiting for employers. I hope this has nothing to do with the Foxconn deal. Please excuse me for some of my ignorance, but isn't WEDC the agency Walker created to fill the 250,000 jobs he promised in his first term and the one that has had problems ever since?
There are probably thousands of residents that are working in jobs well below their capabilities to make ends meet because the jobs are not here. We need better paying jobs here and not just the Mount Pleasant area. Use the money for that or some other deserving agency and dismantle WEDC and put those people into the real work force or send them packing to Chicago!
