Illinois town fights back against vulture capitalists like Bain Capital
Interesting video Illinois town fighting back agaist vultures taking their jobs overseas.
From the article. see video
The town of Freeport, Illinois is fighting back against vulture capitalists like Bain Capital who sweep into their hometowns, closing down family-supporting jobs and outsourcing them overseas, so they can pay slave labor wages and pocket the profits. All on the backs of American workers. The people of Freeport have organized an encampment across the street from Sensata (the company being closed down) to send a message to Bain and others like them that they will not lie down. The Overpass Light Brigade paid a visit to Bainport (as the encampment is being called) to spread the word about the community's efforts and the destruction created by vulture capitalists like Bain.
