Wisconsin's jobs agency unveiled a draft Wednesday of the final Foxconn contract which outlines hiring requirements tied to a $3 billion taxpayer dollar incentives package. By year five of the contract, Foxconn is expected to employ at least 5,000 full-time workers. That number doubles in 2027.
"We have very high demand; students are receiving multiple offers," said MSOE Industrial Engineering Program Director Charlene Yauch.
Yauch said currently, there aren't enough engineers in America; particularly in the industrial and manufacturing fields that Foxconn is looking for.
“I suspect with more companies coming into the area it's only going to get better for the students so-to-speak because they'll have more opportunities to choose from," Yauch said.
Bilandzija said she's going to keep her options open, but hopes Foxconn works out so she can stay close to home.
"They did say for full-time, they would be making callbacks for interviews in like the early winter," Bilandzija said.
On Friday, Gov. Scott Walker will officially sign the Foxconn contract in Racine. All that's left after that is signatures from Foxconn execs to finalize the deal.
