GOP Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney touts his business experience as founder and owner of Bain Capital as a main qualification for office. But those who have worked for companies managed by the infamous leveraged buyout firm know from experience that if Romney applies Bain’s techniques to running the USA, he’ll run our country into the ground.
To educate voters about the dangers of a “Romney economy,” current and former employees of Bain-owned firms have taken their show on the road. The Bain Workers Bus Tour is rolling through swing state cities and making stops at Bain-owned company sites throughout the last weeks of the election. Demonstrations include heartfelt speeches from Bain employees; sign-waving and cheers from large, supportive crowds; and the handing out of symbolic pink slips.
