Job-creation subsidies go unchecked

Steven Schultze and Joel Dresang of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel found that, while the state doles out hundreds of millions in subsidies to Wisconsin businesses for job creation, it fails to track if the money actually makes a difference. The Journal Sentinel investigation shows that thousands of promised jobs are not getting filled. Schultze and Dresang focused on 25 companies that got $80 million in subsidies. About 40 percent of the jobs they promised never materialized.
