I am amazed at how some people think> Ok, so we are living in a country where jobs are being outsources, but at the same time many want to see the min wage raised to $15 an hour...Now, if that is the case, everything will get more expensive. The min wage will be raised, that means management will need to have their salaries raised, and there will be more demand to outsource. It this Walkers fault or is it the fault of people who can see their nose in front of their face if they are looking in the mirror?

You like giving tax credits to companies that promise to create jobs, take the tax credit, and create those jobs in another country??? Why don't we give that tax money back to the people who paid this tax money instead of redistributing this money to corporations?

Here is another source for you to read from:

Legislative Audit Bureau released a report Friday critical of WEDC, Walker’s signature job-creation agency. The audit found WEDC failed to consistently require businesses to comply with key requirements in exchange for state funding, including documenting jobs it helped create.

The report is the latest black eye for WEDC, the public-private agency Walker created in 2011 to help state businesses create jobs. The audit covered the agency’s performance during the 2013-14 fiscal year and included a detailed review of how more than 100 awards made by WEDC were handled.
