Evers Throws Your Money Into Money Pit

This is a good insight into the liberal mindset.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Gov. Tony Evers on Wednesday announced that $130 million in federal coronavirus relief funds will be used to help address the state’s worker shortage problem and assist unemployed people searching for a job.

The bulk of the money, $100 million, will go toward a workforce innovation program for the development of solutions to workforce challenges the state faced after the COVID-19 pandemic, Evers said.

Another $20 million will go to a worker advancement initiative that will offer about 2,000 unemployed people subsidized employment and skills training opportunities with local employers. And $10 million would go to a program that provides workforce career coaches to help people find jobs.

So Evers won’t do something that would save money and actually help the problem, like end federal unemployment enhancements early, but he will spend a ton of your money on another government program. While not actually solving anything, he will send your money to his political cronies who run programs like this.

    Hmmmm, yet Foxconn was a good idea?

    It was a GREAT idea to the 100’s of men and women who built that building and prepared the infrastructure surrounding it.

    Foxconn is NOT a “help Democrat community organizers and campaign consultants” operation.

    If the enhancement program ended, people could still stay on unemployment if they so desire.
    There’s no need for it now, and probably no need for it in the past, except, perhaps, a few months

    I wonder if will include skills training for Ron Kind’s whore house.

    “The bulk of the money, $100 million, will go toward a workforce innovation program for the development of solutions to workforce challenges the state faced after the COVID-19 pandemic, nEvers said.”

    Word Salad Translation: “$100 million will go toward bonus payments to useless bureaucrats”

    dud:

    $416+ Million from the state for road work alone. Not to mention cost to locals for RE, engineering, interest, etc. I’m sure it was a great benefit to the contractors and their employees, suppliers, etc. Not so much for taxpayers in the rest of the state. That $130 million doesn’t come near the scam that Foxconn is.

    They are talking about building electric vehicles there now, so something good might come out of it.

    More facts that Leroy just likes to make up… better call over to Madison.com and tell them they’re wrong on the numbers.

    >So far, Foxconn has not received any state dollars, but the project in Mount Pleasant already has cost the state more than $200 million in state and local road improvements, sales and use tax exemptions, grants to local governments and for worker training and employment. Foxconn has reported investing more than $850 million in the state.
