It seems all of Racine County has fallen in step with Foxconn. All we hear about is what a great thing it will be for our area. Not once, has anyone asked questions concerning working conditions, working hours, and uninflated workers' wages.
We have heard the “average” wage will be about $54,000 per year. How many high paid executives will inflate that number for the floor worker? If they work a six-day week, with 12-hour shifts, I’m seeing four shifts at 36 hours per week per floor worker.
There are too many hard questions that haven’t been answered. I hope I’m wrong, but the powers that be are drinking the kool-aide, and to those that are currently employed, everything looks rosey.
