Dream houses designated ‘blighted’ to make way for Foxconn #makerbusiness @belt_magazine

Adafruit 2018 0328
In Racine County, neatly maintained homes and dream houses are being designated ‘blighted’ to make way for Foxconn – Belt Magazine.

…previous stories about Foxconn in Wisconsin, we looked at the likely disappointments in the jobs Foxconn would create for Wisconsinitesthe flawed investment case and negotiation process, and the environmental and social disasters impending for local residents. On all accounts, we found Wisconsin’s $3 billion investment in Foxconn destined to disappoint Wisconsinites. The manner in which Racine County residents are being evicted and the employment realities thus far of Foxconn’s new TV assembly plant in Mt. Pleasant give us no reason to revise our judgment.
