Epic Guest Host Michael Shure talks to Dave Johnson from the Campaign for America’s Future about Sensata Technologies, a Bain Capital-owned Illinois auto parts factory that scheduled to shut down at the end of the year when its work is being exported to China. But workers are fighting back with sit-ins, truck blockages and other protests.

Johnson says, “These people are asking Mitt Romney, will you please come here and show us that you mean what you say?”
