[Madison, Wis.] – Scott Walker’s commitment to put Wisconsin first has been on display throughout this week – from the historic Foxconn groundbreaking to the governor’s new TV ad featuring a central Wisconsin family business, Gov. Walker is helping Wisconsin’s workers win the 21st century.
With Gov. Walker leading the way, Wisconsin is on a comeback as business investment is returning to our state and jobs are being created. $8 billion in tax cuts, more people working than ever before and record-low unemployment are just a few of the many results the governor’s reforms have achieved. The Foxconn investment was on display Thursday – the largest economic development project in Wisconsin’s history that will create at least 13,000 jobs and pay an average salary of $53,875. The success of companies large and small – all across Wisconsin – show that Scott Walker is helping Wisconsin win the 21st century.

From Fox 11: “Gov. Scott Walker said the company will attract graduates and millennials to the area. ‘This will make us a brain gain state not a brain drain state but a brain gain state as we attract more of our graduates to stay and prosper here in the state of Wisconsin,’ said Walker.”
From WXCO’s Morning Line: “’… as Quinn pointed out in the ad that since the Wisconsin comeback started in 2011, they’ve added forty new jobs, they’ve grown their company. And they’re not just any old jobs, they’re good-paying, family-supporting jobs…’”

Scott Walker spoke at the airline’s announcement and praised the decision by Air Wisconsin to expand in the state. ‘These are exactly the kinds of careers we want to keep our young people here in in the Fox Cities and in the state of Wisconsin,’ he said. ‘That’s really our goal.’”
From WISC: “’Foxconn will help Wisconsin win the 21st century,’ Walker told the crowd of employees, state officials and others in attendance. ‘Ladies and gentlemen, you’re part of history.’”
