CNN Visits Bainport's Sensata Workers

CNN reports: Six people were arrested Wednesday morning at a north central Illinois plant run by Bain Capital-owned Sensata Technologies, where 170 workers are set to lose their jobs by the end of the year.

Sensata employees themselves, had hoped the looming shutdown would pop up in Tuesday night's debate, particularly when Romney and Obama started trading jabs on the topic of offshoring.

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney helped found Bain Capital, and several workers from Sensata have pleaded with the former Massachusetts governor to intervene at the private equity firm and prevent the offshoring of their jobs, so far without success.
