Last week, top Republicans announced at the White House that electronics manufacturing giant Foxconn plans to build a facility in Wisconsin. They’re looking at 1,000 acre parcels of land in the southeastern part of the state, and Governor Scott Walker says they’ll employ 13,000 people.
Walker scheduled a special legislative session to pass a series of incentives for Foxconn. Among them, loosening environmental regulations for the company. Nina Kravinsky spoke with the director of Wisconsin’s John Muir chapter of the Sierra Club, Bill Davis, about their concerns.
