Don't Expect Jobs Anytime Soon Says Doyle
Governor Scott Walker will sign Wisconsin’s mining incentive bill this afternoon at two factories that could supply equipment for the proposed Gogebic Taconite iron ore mine. Don't look for immediate jobs as touted by Walker though, says democrat Steve Doyle. Like 5-10 years down the road if that.
Walker chose the two locations to emphasize his contention that a mine would provide thousands of support jobs throughout Wisconsin and not just the 700 to operate the facility in Ashland and Iron counties.
