“We will be completely out of a job.”
“Who’s gonna hire me?”
“They’re abusing these people.”
“It’s really slave labor is what it is.”
Mitt’s “fingerprints are all over everything that company does.”
“He’s out of touch with 99% of the people…”
“If you want know what the Romney economy is why don’t you look up Sensata…”
Remember Sensata? If not, read this post: Bain owned company outsourcing Illinois jobs to China; employees want Mitt Romney to intervene.
To add insult to injury, those soon-to-be-ex-employees have to train their own Chinese replacements. Yes, that’s right, their jobs are being shipped to China by the end of this year.

According to Think Progress, Romney has “held a direct investment in Sensata through one fund titled ‘Bain Capital Fund IX, L.P.,’ dated December 31, 2009, meaning he has likely financially benefited from Bain’s ownership of the company in the past, and could benefit from the plant’s closure and the outsourcing of the jobs to China.” And “according to his 2011 personal financial disclosure, Romney still holds the Bain Capital fund that contains the Sensata investment.” [...]
It’s not like Sensata is nearing bankruptcy, or that this is a business plan to return to profitability.
