Boston Globe Reports Romney Maintained Investment in Chinese Manufacturer with Deplorable Work Conditions that Relied on Outsourcing
Boston, MA - Today Monday, September 17 at 2:00 PM at Romney Campaign Headquarters in Boston, AFL-CIO President Steve Tolman and 1199SEIU Executive Vice President Veronica Turner will hold a press conference to respond to this weekend's Boston Globe report that Romney maintained investments in a Chinese manufacturer that relied on outsourcing American jobs, even after he visited a factory and saw poor work conditions, where women were packed 12 per dorm room and were surrounded by barbed wire. Watch the video of Romney describe the working conditions HERE.
Mitt Romney is trying to convince the American people that he'll stand up to China - but we know that's just empty rhetoric and political posturing. For years Mitt Romney has invested in China. Mitt Romney's rhetoric on the campaign trail while holding Chinese investments is hypocrisy at its worst.
Watch the recently leaked video of Mitt Romney commenting on the poor labor practices in a Chines company which he invested in VIDEO HERE. Read the Boston Globe's report on the firm, Global Tech HERE.
