MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsinites are less likely than other Americans to work for a foreign-owned outfit.
That's according to the Brookings Institution, which says about 3.7 percent of workers in the Badger State are employed by foreign-owned establishments. That's not even half of the percentage in New York State, where 8.5 percent of employees work for foreign-owned firms.
Brookings gathered the data to get a handle on how much direct foreign investment is taking place in the U.S.
The study is part of the Brookings' Global Cities Initiative, which is jointly run by the institute and J.P. Morgan Chase.
