Walker's 'economic development' agency gives taxpayer money to companies that outsource jobs to Mexico and other countries.

Quote:
MADISON (WKOW) -- At least two companies that received financial awards from the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) later outsourced jobs to foreign countries, with one of those companies receiving a second WEDC award after the fact.
Quote:
In April of 2013, Eaton laid off 163 employees at its Cooper Power Systems plant in Pewaukee and announced it was moving those jobs to Mexico. Less than a year later, WEDC awarded Eaton Corp. with up to $1.36 million in additional tax credits for a proposed $54 million expansion at that same Pewaukee plant. But on Wednesday, WEDC Spokesperson Mark Maley told 27 News Eaton Corp. "recently notified WEDC it will not seek any tax credits for this project."
Quote:
Eaton Corp. is based in Dublin, Ireland, but has numerous offices and interests in the United Kingdom, United States, Indonesia, Singapore, France, Germany and Mexico.

Why would we give them our tax dollars? Does that make sense to you?

This is a curious connection.

Quote:
Companies involved in the outsourcing made 85 percent of their state political donations to the campaign of Gov. Walker from 2011 to 2013.
Quote:
According to a blog on the WDC website, the three companies - Eaton Corp., its subsidiary Cooper Power Systems, and Plexus Corp., donated a total of $6,500 to state and legislative candidates during that three year span, with $5,553 going to the Walker campaign.
Quote:
A 27 News investigation uncovered that Eaton Corp. and Plexus Corp. both received millions of dollars in tax credits from the WEDC for job creation and retention, but later outsourced jobs to foreign countries.
UPDATE: Companies that outsourced jobs donated primarily to Walk - WKOW 27: Madison, WI Breaking News, Weather and Sports

OP, I'm sorry but as usual, the thread fails..

The figures posted
250,000 jobs, spending $1.36 million dollars.

This comes out to $5.44 per job..

Really? If that figure is true, then this means the Obama stimulus package is the biggest failure on the face of the earth because at the same rate, it would have created 6 TRILLION jobs..

Wow, thats some bang for the buck...

Walker gave a speech in the Neenah area and announced that jobs would be added to this area. Just 1 month later, Plexus reduced it’s workforce by about 100, this workforce reduction did not make it into the papers for some reason.

Quote:
In May 2012, 3 weeks before he faced the voters in a recall election, Governor Walker made an appearance at Plexus Corporation to announce that the company was going to add jobs in the Neenah area, with the help of WEDC tax credits. Doubly interesting is the fact that the Walker website has been scrubbed of this announcement, but Blogging Blue still has their post from 2012 about it,as well as the failure to add those jobs later on.
