Sensata

October 19th, 2012

Inspired by Ed’s report tonight from Freeport, Illinois, where Bain Capital is closing down Sensata Technologies and shipping the jobs to China.

 

“For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” – Mark 8:36

 

How much

Is enough greed?

How much profit

Do you need?

 

How about

Half a billion last quarter

To not be

A jobs exporter.

 

That was the amount

Of Sensata profit,

Which to me sounds

Like a lotta profit.

 

But it wasn’t enough

When Mitt could make even more

By moving production

Offshore.

 

Workers rue the day

When Bain “invested.”

Now it’s time for Sensata

To be “harvested.”

 

Employees weren’t overpaid

Or lazy shirkers.

Now they’re forced to train

Those Chinese workers.

 

Losing your soul

May sound bad,

But can you lose something

You never had?

Here’s Ed’s 10/19/12 report from Freeport, IL.
