These greedy bastards are not only pulling jobs out of Freeport Il, where there are no good jobs to replace them, but they are actually packing up the Sensata factory and shipping the equipment...and our specialized American technology to China. They are not even sneaking around like spies to sell the technology to China, they are brazenly taking the technology and handing it gift wrapped to the Chinese.
It is no secret that the Chinese have been breaking all our patent laws and stealing American designs and technologies for years, but now Mitt and his greedy cohorts are actually taking the technology to China themselves. The technology is worth far more than the plant is and will be able to generate billions of dollars for the Chinese economy while robbing America's economy in the process.
To make matters worse, they brought Chinese engineers to the plant between May and July of this year and forced the Sensata workers to train them, before losing their jobs to the Chinese. Usually a company is sold when it is not making a profit but in the case of Sensata, the company made more than 500 million dollars in the second quarter of 2012.
Aren't there laws about selling secrets to foreign governments? This Sensata plant produces the highest quality sensors which are then sold to various car companies. The technology is uniquely American and is of the highest standard worldwide. The Chinese are just salivating over the prospect of acquiring the new technology...something they would take years to develop on their own.
According to numbers on The Ed Show, Bain owns 51% of Sensata and Romney has at least $8 million worth of stock in Sensata, so Mitt Romney is very well informed that he is party to the outsourcing of American jobs to China...something he and his campaign are very tight lipped about.
For the past few months the workers have been fighting tooth and nail to keep the jobs here. They have sent letters to Romney and his camp pleading for his input in saving their livelihoods. They have had doors shut on them by the Romney people and many of them have been arrested in protests held outside of the plant.
In the latest attempt to shed light on the issue, Ed Schultz of MSNBC did his evening show live from the Freeport Il today, at the workers' camp which is set up just outside the company gates. The workers have been trying to impede the trucks that come and go with the equipment being shipped. In response to the show broadcast, the plant gates were barricaded and the workers were not allowed into the compound to work today.
I look forward to Ed making a stink about this all the way to the elections and beyond, I for one will be right at his side.
The journalstandard.com writes... 'Freeport itself has had appearances from Illinois Governor Pat Quinn, former NAACP Chairman Julian Bond, U.S. Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL), and the Democratic challenger for the Illinois 17th District Cheri Bustos. In addition, there has also been the production of a documentary at “Bainport,” and Reverend Al Sharpton is scheduled to appear there at 4 p.m. on Saturday.
Mitt Romney should not be elected President, he has been a dishonest broker in this whole matter...he is lying to the American people...he is not deserving of that job.
