    Illinois City Calls On Mitt Romney To Stop Bain-Owned Company From Outsourcing 170 Local Jobs

    WASHINGTON -- The city council of Freeport, Ill., approved a resolution Monday evening that will call on presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney to step in and save roughly 170 local jobs being outsourced by a company owned by Bain Capital .

    Last year, Massachusetts-based Sensata Technologies announced that it was closing its Freeport plant by the end of 2012 and shipping the jobs to China. The U.S. positions, the company claimed, would be phased out gradually. Sensata Technologies makes sensors and controls that are used in aircraft and automobiles.

    The resolution organized by Sensata employees calls on Romney -- who co-founded Bain -- to "come to Freeport to meet the people directly affected by Bain Capital's outsourcing and to step in and stop the outsourcing of these jobs from Freeport to China."

    Hmmm Wonder how many jobs OL'Jeff Immelt, you know Barrys Bud and Jobs Tzar, has oursourced?? China is doing well thank you.

    Funny. Don't see any mention of him or GE, tax loophole GE, mentioned in the above.

    I guess it only counts when its Romney, Bain, or any other Rep.

    Freeport Ill.? Seems to me that mayby the powers that be in Ill. could do more than Romney about stopping outsourcing in that State.

    Romney doesn't run Bain. Wonder what they think he can do??

    Hmmm i dont think the fact that we have the same article under a new thread changes the fact that government has caused the problem by over inflating labor costs.

    Romney can't do shit with Bain now, as he doesn't own it or work for/with it anymore.

    The thread isn't about Immelt. And while Obama doesn't mention Immelt by name, Obama talks about reforming the tax code to specifically get rid of loopholes that favor offshoring. Romney has not done that.

    And Romney could publically ask that Bain not do this..

    Simple as that.

    Why didn't some of the rethugs on here write;

    Fuk those middle class people losing their jobs to out sourcing. Bain is doing what Mitt designed it to do.
    The fuking problem is that these American workers want to get paid enough to live on. And Bain don't want that. Better to ship jobs out of the country. Make more money that way.

    Why didn't you rehtugs write that. It seems to be how you think. Why not own up to your opinions?
