Factories Full Of Women

This video about Mitt Romney’s China dealings is making the rounds:

Around the 0:45 mark you can hear Romney talking about a tour he took of a Chinese factory. You hear him talk about how awful the living conditions are in these factories, how many hours a day these people work, the crappy wages, and how they live 12 girls crammed into one room, with one tiny bathroom serving 10 rooms. And how the factory is surrounded by a huge fence with barbed wire and guard towers. Take it away, Mitt:

And we said, “Gosh I can’t believe how you keep these girls in. And they said, ‘No, no, no. This is to keep other people from coming in! Because people want so badly to come work in this factory that we have to keep them out or they’ll just come in here and start working and try to get compensated! This is to keep people out!'”

Riiiiight. Mitt Romney is either dumber than a box of hammers or he thinks his audience is.

I wonder if he thinks this is a plan for American workers? I’ll bet he does.

    Ed Shultz broadcast tonight from Freeport IL and the closing Sensata plant where Bain Capital is closing it, moving 170 jobs to China after forcing these US workers to TRAIN their replacements and after this company announced a $500 million PROFIT this past year. And to think that these jobs might go to people who would have to work under the conditions Mitt described…Ed had one word for it….GREED.

    Once the plant is located in China, the chinese intelligence agencies will co-opt or replace some of the workers, steal whatever technology they can and start making the stuff themselves. This is part and parcel of the weird mix of laissez-faire capitalism and single party totalitarianism politics that exists in China, today.

    That Mittmoroni is willing to fuck his employees is no surprise but I doubt that a potential buyer for the company will be stupid enough to purchase it if it’s chinese controlled.
