Exclusive: Wisconsin report confirms Foxconn’s so-called LCD factory isn’t real

Exclusive: Wisconsin report confirms Foxconn’s so-called LCD factory isn’t real

Filed under:The building ‘may be better suited for demonstration purposes rather than as a viable commercial glass fabrication facility’A state report on Foxconn’s Wisconsin factory depicts a project gone far off course. The report, issued this month by Wisconsin’s Division of Executive Budget and Finance and obtained through a records request, confirms that the company has not built the enormous Gen 10.5 LCD factory specified in its contract. It also says that the building the company claims is a smaller Gen 6 LCD factory shows no signs of manufacturing LCDs in the foreseeable future and...

Wisconsin denies Foxconn tax subsidies after contract negotiations fail

Wisconsin denies Foxconn tax subsidies after contract negotiations fail

Three years later, the factory — and the jobs — don’t exist, and they probably never will. Inside the empty promises and empty buildings of Wisconn Valley. Hopes were high among the employees who joined Foxconn’s Wisconsin project in the summer of 2018. In June, President...

Inside Foxconn’s empty buildings, empty factories, and empty promises in Wisconsin

Hopes were high among the employees who joined Foxconn’s Wisconsin project in the summer of 2018. In June, President Donald Trump had broken ground on an LCD factory he called “the eighth wonder of the world.” The scale of the promise was indeed enormous: a $10 billion investment from the Taiwanese electronics giant, a 20 million-square-foot manufacturing complex, and, most importantly, 13,000 jobs.Which is why new recruits arriving at the 1960s office building Foxconn had purchased in downtown Milwaukee were surprised to discover they had to provide their own office supplies. “One of the...

Robots aren’t taking our jobs — they’re becoming our bosses

On conference stages and at campaign rallies, tech executives and politicians warn of a looming automation crisis — one where workers are gradually, then all at once, replaced by intelligent machines.

The robots are here, they’re working in management, and they’re grinding workers into the ground.The robots are watching over hotel , telling them which room to clean and tracking how quickly they do it. They’re managing software developers, monitoring their clicks and scrolls and docking their pay if they work too...
