---from One Million Strong Against Mitt Romney on Facebook.

Not surprisingly, he didn't bring those jobs to the US. He just bought the factory. Go figure.

 Good luck teasing out that information. He generally refuses to talk about his foreign investments. This was leaked out from one of his private fund-raisers.

I just find it amusing that he's all over the Obama administration's dealings with China, arguing somehow that we're losing our jobs to China while he was busy buying up factories there---and *not* to bring them back to America.

Quoting LindaClement:

Did he raise the wages?

It'd be really interesting to know if he improved their living conditions and gave them better wages or if he kept it just long enough to realize a huge profit while doing nothing about the conditions.

You can't 'bring them back the America.'

Americans won't pay what it costs to make things in America.

 Partly true. Many companies, however, move overseas purely to make larger profits.

Did he improve the living or work conditions?

The workers at the factories he shut down don't count as they were part of that 47% that he was talking about. Oh and not to mention, that he is just blaming their job loss on Obama.

You should really post the rest of that story...it gets WORSE!! Much worse....

I am wondering why this isn't bigger than his not caring about half the country remarks.

 Do share...

Admittedly, I pulled that from "1 Million Strong Against Mitt Romney" without doing much research : X
