To refresh your memory, the Bain-owned company, Sensata, is outsourcing Illinois jobs to China; employees want Mitt Romney to intervene. The soon-to-be-ex-workers have been forced to train their own Chinese replacements. Their jobs are being shipped to China in November.
America first! Go Mitt!
Sensata worker Mary Jo Kerr:
“Once it closes, it’s devastating for the whole entire town. Everybody’s just walking around slumped over not knowing what they’re gonna do.”
“[I thought Romney's] gonna create American jobs. He says that’s what he’s gonna do… And when I found out that he owned Bain Capital and Bain Capital owned Sensata and they were shipping our jobs to China, I was furious.”
“He’s a bald-faced liar. I mean, he’s going out there saying I’m gonna create American jobs when, no he’s not. He’s profiting off of jobs going overseas.”
“Having to train somebody [Chinese workers] to take your job and you don’t have any control over it, it was probably the hardest thing I had to do.”
