As Mitt Romney vowed to create jobs in a campaign speech on Thursday, workers at a Freeport, Illinois, plant set for closure under ownership by his former company, Bain Capital, staged a walkout Thursday — one day after 14 people, including Rev. Jesse Jackson, were arrested. Workers have staged an encampment called “Bainport” across from the Sensata Technologies plant to protest plans to move the factory to China, ending 170 jobs.
