WORKER LAID OFF UNDER BAIN CAPITAL: ROMNEY ‘DIDN’T CARE ABOUT THE WORKERS,’ PUT ‘PROFIT OVER PEOPLE’

WORKER LAID OFF UNDER BAIN CAPITAL: ROMNEY ‘DIDN’T CARE ABOUT THE WORKERS,’ PUT ‘PROFIT OVER PEOPLE’ | Speaking to reporters tonight in Des Moines, Iowa, a worker laid off by a company owned by Bain Capital accused former Bain Capital CEO and current Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney of being “out of touch” with the concerns of average Americans. Randy Johnson and more than 250 of his fellow workers at a Marion, Indiana American Pad and Paper (AMPAD) facility lost their jobs after Bain decided to close the plant amid a labor dispute. Johnson, who noted that he personally reached out to Romney during the labor dispute, said, “I really think (Romney) didn’t care about the workers. It was all about profit over people.” In addition to the layoffs and eventual bankrupting of AMPAD, Bain Capital under Romney’s leadership drove several other firms into bankruptcy and caused thousands of layoffs.

(The ladies' sports teams are called the TexAnn's. How quaint.) Taylor seems from all appearances like a normal southern frat boy. He likes beer, hot chicks, fishin' and huntin'. And on December 30, 2011, he posted his New Year's Resolution on Twitter for the whole world to see.
