Foxconn riddle: Do 5 Super Walmarts = 1 Pentagon

In a story behind its for-subscribers-only service wall only, the Milwaukee Journal is reporting that the latest iteration of the Foxconn plan includes a factory as big as five Wal-Mart Super Centers.

An unfortunate comparison, as it's still not clear how many humans will work in the Foxconn factory, but we know that at $11-an-hour, a lot of Wal-Mart workers rely for health insurance on taxpayer-paid Medicaid and use food stamps (SNAP benefits) to buy food like what's sold in Wal-Mart Super Stores.

On the other hand, it had been earlier reported that the Foxconn factory would be as big as the Pentagon.

Can convert Pentagons into Wal-Mart store units?
