New York (CNN Business)Foxconn is denying a report that it plans to bring in workers from China to staff aplant in Wisconsin that’s been mired in controversy since it was announced.
The Taiwan-based electronics company said Tuesday its priority is hiring workers from Wisconsin and other parts of the United States.
“We can categorically state that the assertion that we are recruiting Chinese personnel to staff our Wisconsin project is untrue,” Foxconn said. “Our recruitment priority remains Wisconsin first and we continue to focus on hiring and training workers from throughout Wisconsin. We will supplement that recruitment from other US locations as required.”
