- Sensata worker Mary Jo Kerr was on The Ed Show
on Monday night, saying she had initially liked Romney before she
learned his connection to Bain and Sensata. About Romney's campaign
claims, she says that "he's just a bold-faced liar. He's going out there
saying 'I'm going to create American jobs' when no, he's not, he's
profiting off of jobs going overseas."
The Ed Show will go on the road to Freeport, Illinois, on Friday.
- Bainport, the camp workers have set up across the street from the Sensata factory, is getting a visit from Sen. Dick Durbin, along with Democratic congressional candidate Cheri Bustos, on Tuesday morning.
The Rev. Al Sharpton will visit Bainport on Saturday.
- Workers not just from Sensata but from other Bain-owned companies rallied outside Bain headquarters
in Manhattan on Monday. "I was unemployed for two years and the job at
Burlington is the only job I could find. I know I’m not the only one
with that experience," Burlington Coat Factory employee Richard Hooten
said. "My mother and I have had to move to a series of smaller and
cheaper apartments. Even so, I can’t afford both rent and healthcare.
What’s going to happen when these are the only jobs we can find? None of
us will be able to get by."
The workers are going to Long Island to tell their stories outside Tuesday night's presidential debate.
