Whoa: Romney talks about buying a Chinese factory with abusive labor practices

via USAProgressive:

“When I was back in my private equity days, we went to China to buy a factory there. It employed about 20,000 people. And they were almost all young women between the ages of about 18 and 22 or 23. They were saving for potentially becoming married.

And they work in these huge factories, they made various uh, small appliances. And uh, as we were walking through this facility, seeing them work, the number of hours they worked per day, the pittance they earned, living in dormitories with uh, with little bathrooms at the end of maybe 10, 10 room, rooms. And the rooms they have 12 girls per room.

“The Bain Partner I was with turned to me and said, you know, 95% of life is settled if you are born in America.

This is uh, this is an amazing land and what we have is unique and fortunately it is so special we are sharing it with the world.”
