In Freeport, IL, Sensata Technologies, a company owned by Bain Capital, is sending 170 workers' jobs to China. To add insult to injury, Bain is even forcing the Freeport workers to train their Chinese replacements. A group of the workers have organized to garner support for the "Bring American Jobs Home Act," a common sense bill that gives American workers an even playing field by replacing tax loopholes for companies that send jobs overseas with financial incentives to bring jobs back to America.
On Tuesday, the workers caught up with Schilling but the Congressman refused to answer their simple yes or no question and then walked out of his own town hall meeting to avoid further questions. The video is below.
Bobby Schilling can run from meetings but he can't hide from his record in Washington:
- Free Trade deals that ship jobs overseas
- Tax break incentives for companies to leave the U.S.
- Hiding the number of jobs companies send overseas
- Cutting job retraining programs for workers whose jobs were lost overseas
Join me in asking Bobby Schilling to take a stand on the Sensata Technologies workers plight:
Rep. Schilling, you said, "Americans Need Jobs Now" in the Argus Dispatch on September 23.1 Will you stand up for the jobs at Sensata Technologies in your district and tell Bain Capital that you do not support outsourcing those jobs to China? We demand an answer.
Tell Bobby Schilling to stand up for the jobs at Sensata by signing our PETITION
