Mitt Romney & Bain Capital: Save the jobs of Sensata employees in Freeport Illinois!

    2. Petition by

      Michael Harris

      Portage, MI

The employees of Sensata are loyal hard working Americans. The jobs they do to support their families are being shipped overseas to China. This practice of creating wealth for the few by closing American factories and sending the jobs of the many to foreign countries must stop.

I am asking President Obama to take notice of Freeport as well as Bain Capital. While Gov. Romney is no longer directly involved with Bain Capital I feel this is the business model he helped create. The reponsibility to look for alternatives to outsourcing jobs lies not with just Democrats and Republicans but with wealthy Americans as well. 

I believe that truly patriotic wealthy Americans should look at the good of the country  and it's people before looking at profits.

      It shows what Romney does. He may not have actually closed the plant, but his ideas and company did.

      Please do whatever you can to help the Sensata employees. If there is nothing that can be done to restore their jobs, can we at least use advertising dollars to make sure that EVERY AMERICAN knows about Bain's part in this and that Romney is still the majority shareholder in Bain. President Obama may be able to help find a competing auto supplier to open a plant to replace the stupid Sensata plant and give these hardworking Americans their work back. I stand with the Sensata employees and their families. I am praying for you, this is devastating. Romney and his like are so greedy and unpatriotic, what a travesty. Sincerely, Elena Wakeman.

      We have lost so many jobs, and the man who claims that he cares about 100% of Americans is actually profiting by closing a successful company here and and sending those jobs to China.

      This is important to me because we have to stand up for American Workers. While I applaud reaching out to the President, I believe we need to target a petition directly to the source--Mitt Romney. Enough about this crap that he doesn't have any say @Bain. We all know that if Romney supported the IL plant Bain would reverse course. Romney doesn't have the guts to be president.
