2. "Foxconn has replaced at least 40,000 of its workers in China with robots"

Don't count on working there for long

3. Watch what happens and see if WI is just another con job by the Don. This is from 2012.

4. And initially just 3000 jobs

So that's $1 Million per job. Eventually they say there may be up to 13K, but even that would be $250K per job. Pretty pricey.
