Mark Pocan said : “With the help of our rigged tax code, private equity firms have made out like bandits at the expense of workers and communities. Private investment funds should not be able to cash out by gambling with the wellbeing of hard working families,” “When the private equity firm Sun Capital bought Shopko – a retail chain that’s been in business for over 50 years – they loaded it up with debt, sending it into bankruptcy and leaving their workers with no severance and few options. After many employees spent years – some decades – working for Shopko, they were abruptly left out in the cold with nowhere to turn. This critical piece of legislation holds predatory private equity firms accountable and protects workers from the consequences of firms’ greed” External link

Mark Pocan said : "As we have previously noted, the global market environment that existed when the project was first announced has changed,” Foxconn said in a statement Wednesday. “As our plans are driven by those of our customers, this has necessitated the adjustment of plans for all projects, including Wisconsin”. The Taiwanese technology juggernaut initially pledged in 2017 to construct a $10 billion display panel plant and create up to 13,000 jobs in the state’s southeastern corner over the next 15 years. The positions would pay an average annual wage of $53,000, the firm said — a solid salary in the manufacturing realm. In exchange, Wisconsin agreed to give Foxconn at least $3 billion in state tax credits and breaks, according to the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation, a public-private agency that helped negotiate the package. The deal drew criticism after it emerged that Wisconsin would not make money for 25 years. Foxconn said Wednesday it still aimed to create 13,000 jobs in the state but did not respond to questions about the nature of the positions, when they would arrive and what precisely inspired the shift. “In Wisconsin we’re not building a factory,” Louis Woo, special assistant to Foxconn chief executive Terry Gou, told Reuters . “You can’t use a factory to view our Wisconsin investment”. Under the contract, Wisconsin can cancel some payouts if Foxconn does not stick to its word. State officials on Wednesday said Foxconn will not qualify for tax incentives until the company meets its job creation and facility investment targets. “WEDC’s performance-based contract with Foxconn provides the company the flexibility to make these business decisions, and at the same time, protects Wisconsin’s taxpayers,” said Kelly Lietz, vice president of marketing at the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation in a statement. Lietz added: “Foxconn’s long-term success both globally and within Wisconsin is centered around the alignment of its business model with ever-changing global economic conditions, including evolving customer demands”. Mark Pocan (D-Wis.), who asked the U.S. Government Accountability Office in November to investigate the Foxconn deal and other enormous state subsidy packages, said Wisconsin has already poured cash into new roads, campus construction and paying families who lived on the tentative factory site to move. He declined to name a figure. “These companies play communities against each other to get the very best deal at the expense of the taxpayer, and they don’t live up to the deal they promised," External link

Mark Pocan said : "As we have previously noted, the global market environment that existed when the project was first announced has changed,” Foxconn said in a statement Wednesday. “As our plans are driven by those of our customers, this has necessitated the adjustment of plans for all projects, including Wisconsin”. The Taiwanese technology juggernaut initially pledged in 2017 to construct a $10 billion display panel plant and create up to 13,000 jobs in the state’s southeastern corner over the next 15 years. The positions would pay an average annual wage of $53,000, the firm said — a solid salary in the manufacturing realm. In exchange, Wisconsin agreed to give Foxconn at least $3 billion in state tax credits and breaks, according to the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation, a public-private agency that helped negotiate the package. The deal drew criticism after it emerged that Wisconsin would not make money for 25 years. Foxconn said Wednesday it still aimed to create 13,000 jobs in the state but did not respond to questions about the nature of the positions, when they would arrive and what precisely inspired the shift. “In Wisconsin we’re not building a factory,” Louis Woo, special assistant to Foxconn chief executive Terry Gou, told Reuters . “You can’t use a factory to view our Wisconsin investment”. Under the contract, Wisconsin can cancel some payouts if Foxconn does not stick to its word. State officials on Wednesday said Foxconn will not qualify for tax incentives until the company meets its job creation and facility investment targets. “WEDC’s performance-based contract with Foxconn provides the company the flexibility to make these business decisions, and at the same time, protects Wisconsin’s taxpayers,” said Kelly Lietz, vice president of marketing at the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation in a statement. Lietz added: “Foxconn’s long-term success both globally and within Wisconsin is centered around the alignment of its business model with ever-changing global economic conditions, including evolving customer demands”. Mark Pocan (D-Wis.), who asked the U.S. Government Accountability Office in November to investigate the Foxconn deal and other enormous state subsidy packages, said Wisconsin has already poured cash into new roads, campus construction and paying families who lived on the tentative factory site to move. He declined to name a figure. “These companies play communities against each other to get the very best deal at the expense of the taxpayer, and they don’t live up to the deal they promised," External link
