VIDEO: Bain Capital owns Sensata Technologies. Watch soon-to-be ex-Sensata workers respond to leaked Romney video.


"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.

In the above video, Sensata workers watched the Romney secret video about how “Chinese factory workers” just couldn’t tear themselves away from their fine working conditions.


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.


  •  I wonder, how many of these people would have woken up how Romney made his money -- by taking your pensions, cutting your jobs, reducing your wages if you kept a job  --- if they weren't presonally impacted.  There are a lot of people out there that stupid vote for GOPS  only because they listen to FOX SPEWS and hate radio and are sucked in by it.   These people had to actually go through it.

  • Ummm, Blondetwit? I said RED. Good god, dearie, can't you READ?

  • Red it is.   =^..^=~~

  • Ummm, welll.... sure. Red would be ok. Unless, of course, you can get your hands on some red.

  • Well...if I sell myself, maybe I can get him to give me some of that red, would that be okay?  But it would take just a skosh longer to get, but if you really want it, I'm sure I can get it.

  • Well, crap, can't you get red instead?

  • And there you have it ladies and a nutshell.

  • Okay - got it, but I may only be able to get red.  Just sayin'.


  • Neither. I prefer red.

  • Certainly.  You have cheaper liquor in CA, that's why I drink more beer here.  I make a naughty margie-rita.  We could chase it with wine.  Do you prefer red or red?

  • I only drink wine and margs. You're on your own. Can you pick me up a box of wine on your way to the beer mart?

  • And to think....there's another month and a half until this all ends.  What, honestly, must be in store for us in the remaining time?  

    Nuke up another bag and grab me another beer, will ya doll?
