As a perfect case in point why Mitt/Gilligan were the absolute worst people to ever run a country, especially to run a country trying to recover from a recession. I offer up exhibit #1!
When Mitt was at Bain "Vulture" Capitol, he made a trip to China where he fell in love with the way they do business!
When I was back in my private equity days, we went to China to buy a factory there. It employed about 20,000 people. And they were almost all young women between the ages of about 18 and 22 or 23. They were saving for potentially becoming married.This is the republican way that 56 million Americans voted for....but as we know, reality gets in the way of republican talking points!
And they work in these huge factories, they made various uh, small appliances. And uh, as we were walking through this facility, seeing them work, the number of hours they worked per day, the pittance they earned, living in dormitories with uh, with little bathrooms at the end of maybe 10, 10 room, rooms. And the rooms they have 12 girls per room.
Three bunk beds on top of each other. You've seen, you've seen them? (Oh...yeah, yeah!) And, and, and around this factory was a fence, a huge fence with barbed wire and guard towers. And, and, we said gosh! I can't believe that you, you know, keep these girls in! They said, no, no, no. This is to keep other people from coming in.
The factory that Romney fell in lust with, was probably trying to keep family members of the forced workers from trying to save their children. Reality Bites Again!
Oregon resident Julie Keith was shocked when she opened her $29.99 Kmart Halloween graveyard decoration kit to find a letter, folded into eights, hidden between two Styrofoam tombstones.
Coming all the way from unit 8, department 2 of the Masanjia Labor Camp in Shenyang, China, the letter written mostly in English read,
"Sir: If you occasionally buy this product, please kindly resend this letter to the World Human Right Organization. Thousands people here who are under the persicution of the Chinese Communist Party Government will thank and remember you forever."
The letter went on to describe 15 hour work days, no days off, and pay at 10 yuan per month ($1.61 US Dollar) if any. It also described the 1-3 year average forced labor terms without trial, and the large amount of Falun Gong practitioners in forced labor, a banned spiritual group.
Read the letter here!
I wonder if there are any republicans in office who would offer up their young daughters to work for 15 hour days/7 days a week for $1.61 A MONTH.....what is Tagg's job anyway? Maybe Tagg could run over there for a month and job shadow! Is that really a vision that they see in America. Do 46 million people want this to be our way of life? It is kind of hard to cut the salary of someone making $1.61/Month.
At least they are not unionized because unions are out of date....
This is also the kind of working conditions that our own Senator Ron Johnson called "creative destruction" for his love of shipping jobs to China.
Brilliant minds on the right......
