Foxconn says it won't staff Wisconsin plant with workers from China

Last year, Foxconn, a supplier to companies like Apple and Microsoft, announced plans for a factory in Racine, Wisconsin, a deal that promised to bring a $10 billion investment and 13,000 jobs to the area. Foxconn, however, has denied those reports. Foxconn is reportedly finding it difficult to staff the factory, which is currently under construction, and Wisconsin's low unemployment rate is adding to the problem.
