Rev. Jesse Jackson arrested in Freeport


The Reverend Jesse Jackson was among 14 people arrested yesterday protesting at a northern Illinois plant in the process of moving nearly 200 jobs to China. Workers at the Sensata Technologies plant in Freeport were protesting the outsourcing of jobs. They filed unfair labor practice charges against the company. Sensata is mostly owned and controlled by Bain Capital, the asset management firm founded by Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and others.
