University of Wisconsin System says it needs more state money to help meet Foxconn's workforce needs - Karen Herzog, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

he University of Wisconsin System says with more state money, it can boost engineering enrollments and training for other workers needed by a Taiwanese electronics company that has big plans to build a factory in southeastern Wisconsin. With the state budget still in flux, and the UW System's funding along with it, the clock is ticking for the public university system to detail what it would need to quickly help fill workforce demands for Foxconn's planned investment of $10 billion in a massive display panel plant in Kenosha County or Racine County that could eventually employ 13,000 people. The project is contingent on the Republican-controlled Legislature passing a tax break bill that could mean $3 billion in incentives for Foxconn.
