Greetings from Bainport

More on Bain Capital/Sensata: Romney is making a killing from this deal.

The employees of Sensata, a Bain Capital company, have set up a tent city opposite the Sensata plant in Freeport, Illinois. (Sensata manufactures automobile sensors for companies like Ford and GM)

Update:Video of Schilling running away from Sensata employees asking if the congressman would support legislation that would give incentives to companies to RETURN jobs to the US. (A Schilling spokesman later told the group the, no, the congressman would not support legislation designed to bring jobs back to the U.S.)

Amy Goodman interviews workers from Sensata in the video below.

They have set up their tent city in an attempt to entice Mitt Romney to come to Freeport and to use his influence with Bain to stop the outsourcing of their jobs to China. They have also set up a web site, Greetings from Bainport to publicize their fight with Bain and to gather support – check out their site.

I have previously blogged about the Sensata outsourcing here.

Update - More on how Schilling helps to ship jobs to China.
