Scott Walker’s Jobs Agency STILL Giving Tax Credits To Outsourcing Company

In a shock to no one, today brought yet another controversy for Scott Walker’s hugely ineffective, taxpayer dollar-draining jobs agency, the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC).

Just a month ago, the WEDC was in the news for being mired in criminal scrutiny surrounding shady loans. Within that same week emerged a troubling report of yet another bad WEDC loan to an individual whom a federal judge had identified as having “all the earmarks of fraud,” according to the Associated Press.

And now, this: Eaton Corporation, a company that shipped 163 jobs to Mexico in 2013 and 93 jobs there in 2015 is still receiving WEDC tax credits — and now Eaton’s outsourcing 83 more jobs from its Pewaukee plant.
