"Foxconn moves to evict renters with minimum notice, then reverses course after inquiry"

Veronica Roussett and her family were among four Sturtevant renters Foxconn initially moved to evict from their homes with the 28-day minimum notice allowed by state law. The company reversed course after being asked about the situation, and now says it will work to let the renters stay for at least 90 days.

"After starting proceedings to evict four Sturtevant families from their homes with the minimum time notice allowed by state law, Foxconn Technology Group reversed course following Milwaukee Journal Sentinel inquires about the situation.

"Instead of the 28 days the tenants originally were granted in hand-delivered notices they got Thursday afternoon, Foxconn now says it will try to let them stay for at least 90 days.

"The events unfolded as Foxconn prepares to buy additional property just outside the area covered by a development contract the company has signed with the Village of Mount Pleasant and Racine County."

The shit is hitting the fan mighty early in the Foxconn fiasco.  All that the Journal Sentinel did was call Foxconn, and they backed down.  See, Journal Times?  Just pick up a phone sometimes . . .

Foxconn is going to have to be monitored every step of the way. They just tried to pull some shit. It's safe to assume they will try to get away with anything that they can.
