Jesse Jackson Oct 26, 2012

#Bainport keeping the pressure on #Sensata as the Reverend Jesse Jackson is arrested Wednesday along with 13 other community leaders and Sensata workers outside the Freeport Illinois plant. Sensata is owned by Bain capital which is closing the profitable company and moving plant operations to China later this year leaving almost 200 workers without a job. Several incidents of arrests have pushed the struggle over worker rights into the national spotlight, as Sensata management is threatening to close the plant early if the protests continue. Thursday, Sensata workers walked off the job. Visit for updates. Photo: Leslie Amsterdam
