Sensata Workers Respond to Leaked Video On Bain/Romney Business Model


Mitt Romney says he didn't ship our jobs to China, he's "sharing with the world."
How generous.

In newly released footage, Mitt Romney tells donors the story of visiting China with his Bain Capital friends and seeing a crowded factory with fences, barbed wire, and guard towers -- but rather than being outraged, he holds this up as a shining example of how our economy should work.

As you know, I'm losing my job to China. So I sat down with my coworkers at Sensata and we taped this response to Mitt Romney's video:



We're exactly the kind of workers Mitt Romney outsourced when he was at Bain Capital. And not only does he continue to profit from it -- recently leaked Bain files show Romney owns stock in Sensata right now -- he also created the business model that's going to cost us our jobs by the end of the year.

My job is a good job -- certainly not enough to make me rich, but I can support my family. But we've been told Bain Capital, which owns Sensata, is shipping our jobs by the end of the year. We've already been forced to train our replacements in China.

If you want to know what the Romney Economy is, just see what's happening to the people of Freeport, Illinois. It's not what I want for my future. Please share this video and get the word out if it's not what you want for yours.

Thanks,

Cheryl Randecker

1. that was so emotional just to watch...

I cannot imagine what it's like to go through it--not just unemployment on an individual basis (because my family is familiar with that) but to see the economy of an entire community decimated.

That was so much more powerful than a professionally produced campaign ad, it really was.

2. Since you said to share

it is now on my timeline @ Facebook. I added the following comment:

Romney has a plan for American workers, based on the slave labor in China. this is a personal story of how Bain is destroying another city

I really would of had a hard time teaching my replacement from China. It would be so tempting to sabotage the whole thing. You guys shouldn't have to be tossed aside for a couple of bucks.
