You are of the opinion that children worked while their parents lounged on the porch drinking lemomade? Seriously, why do you think that 90-100 years ago children in the US could be found working (BTW, farming families in flyover country still have children working) in factories? Here's a clue you won't find in your Karl Marx correspondece courses, it has to do with economic productivety.

For two days we've been led to believe Bain Capital (two years after Mitt Romney officially left the company) destroyed the life of steelworker Joe Soptic by laying him off. No mention of a buyout, no mention of benefit payouts. Bain simply came in and handed workers a pink slip. Turns out, that's not the case. In an interview with Democracy Now, Soptic admits he was offered a buyout by Bain, something he has failed to mention until now.


As reminder, this is the ad.
