Former President Donald Trump touted a plant with Foxconn during his administration, but the project will, unfortunately, create far fewer jobs than originally proposed.
The company which manufactures tech projects planned on opening a complex in Wisconsin that would employ 13,000 people, as the deal with the state was renegotiated cut back from $10 billion to $672 million, NBC News reported.
Now, the estimated new jobs created will be a meager 1,454.
Democratic Gov. Tony Evers suggested that this will take a heavy burden off the shoulders of Wisconsin residents.
