The Crowd chanted “Stop ‘Job Killing Bobby Schilling’” and “say ‘No to the Romney Economy’" as they welcomed the "Stop the Romney Economy" Bain bus. Spokeswoman and IL 17 resident Cynthia Rivers emceed the event and said she worked for 30 years before being laid off. "I've been looking for work and want to work. I’m a good worker. Tell Romney his economy doesn't work for us and won't work for America." Approximately 40 Quad City area residents, many of them underemployed and laid-off, greeted the Bain Worker Bus with a rally signs that read “Schilling save our Sensata jobs”, “Keep good jobs in America”, and “Give us an Economy for all”. Many of the rally participants called on Republican Congressman Bobby Schilling to intercede and stop allowing good jobs to be outsourced. The tour kicked off with a rally in St. Louis, Missouri and is taking the Bain workers’ message straight to voters as it winds its way across the country, culminating in a day of action in Boston, Massachusetts where both Romney’s campaign and Bain Capital are headquartered.
Today’s bus participants are:
Tom Gaulrapp, Sensata (Freeport, IL)
Calvin Johnson, Guitar Center (Detroit, MI)
Jessica Muniz, formerly Dunkin Donuts (Washington, DC)
