Experts say Foxconn pledge on United States jobs hard to implement

LIVE STREAM: President Trump Holds Major Jobs Announcement

State Rep. Samantha Kerkman, R-Salem Lakes, said she also has high hopes for the plant. Foxconn was exploring investments in seven states including Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Texas.

"This is something that will say to the world, 'We have arrived, '" said Walker, adding that this is the company's first USA manufacturing plant.

"The company's initial investment of more than $10 billion will create more than 3000 jobs at a minimum, with a potential for more than 13,000 jobs in the very near future", President Donald Trump said. "In other words, if I didn't get elected, he definitely wouldn't be spending $10 billion dollars", Trump said. "They have to perform and provide what they say they're going to provide, so there are going to be checkpoints before they get anything", said 96th Assembly District State Representative Lee Nerison.

The average salary for the jobs will be almost $54,000, suggesting some of the higher-end positions will be engineers, software developers and people proficient in computer-assisted design, Still said.

But Wisconsin officials said the state's higher education system is capable of producing enough employees by the time the plant opens in 2020. The campus will cover up to 1,000 acres.

Taiwan's Hon Hai Group (Foxconn) will invest 11 trillion won (US$10 billion) to build an LCD (liquid crystal display) production plant in Wisconsin, the US. That would cost the state about $230,000 per job.

Doctors at the hospital had argued that the treatment in the USA wouldn't help Charlie and may even and cause him further pain. Michio Hirano, an American neurology expert from Columbia Medical Center in NY , came to London to examine the child .

The plan, announced Wednesday at a White House ceremony, marks the first major US investment for Foxconn, the world's largest contract manufacturer of electronics and the maker of iPhones and other gadgets for Apple Inc. Hon Hai is planning to make a full-scale foray into the North American TV market dominated by Samsung Electronics and LG Electronics by means of massive investment in the US.

Foxconn and Rockwell Automation are collaborating to implement Connected Enterprise and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) concepts for smart manufacturing in Foxconn's new US facilities.

The Canadian Broadcast Corporation (CBC) pointed out that Foxconn has made promises to invest in the USA in past that fell through, writing, "Foxconn promised in 2013, for example, to invest $30 million and hire 500 workers for a new, high-tech factory in Pennsylvania that was never built".

Governor Walker's executive order requires the Legislature to commence the Wisconn Valley Special Session at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, August 1st, exclusively to consider and act upon the legislation.

Gov. Scott Walker called a Special Session of the Wisconsin State Legislature on Friday, July 28th to consider legislation that would bring Foxconn to Wisconsin. The fact Foxconn, a global leader, chose Wisconsin over every other state in America and every other place in the world should make us feel proud.

The president had met personally with Gou, who on Wednesday complimented Trump's leadership at the event by saying, "Mr. President, the eagle flies".
