Fired Romney Employee Set To Tell All About Candidate’s Job Killing Record

Original Link:

Randy Johnson, who was one of the victims of layoffs by Mitt Romney’s Bain Capital, is set to hold a press conference today in Iowa about Romney’s record in the private sector.

Johnson was one of the workers at American Pad and Paper’s Indiana plant bought by Bain in 1992. Romney’s company then laid off the plant’s workers, cut their pay, reduced health care benefits and destroyed their retirement plan. In response, workers went on strike and Bain shuttered the entire plant and laid of the remaining 250 employees.

Romney and his partners at Bain made $100 million off of the deal, as workers lost their jobs and retirement security.
