American Workers Thank Trump as Manufacturing Plant Breaks Ground: ‘Me and My Family Are Grateful’

American workers thanked President Trump as a new Foxconn manufacturing plant broke ground in Wisconsin on Thursday.

Thank you.” Dawn Wallace, a mother of three, says she re-entered the workforce after being a stay-at-home mom for years due to the job opportunities that have come to Wisconsin. “I would just like to thank Hoffman [Construction] for giving me the opportunity to start something new,” Wallace said. “What a perfect way than Foxconn. I was super excited when I heard it was coming in our area.” Chris Coski, who is one of the project managers on the site, said he “appreciated the opportunity” to get to do a job that he says he’s been doing since he was a child. “Foxconn is probably one of the best things that’s ever happened to Hoffman Construction … and I appreciate the opportunity, President Trump,” Coski said. “Thank you very much.” Trump said Foxconn has already contracted more than 25 local Wisconsin construction companies to help build their main facility.
