Update: A Chinese Flag Flying in Freeport, Illinois?
By Diane Sweet
Update: This is a statement directly from the now unemployed Sensata workers in Illinois:
“There seems to be some confusion about whether or not our Sensata plant took down our American flag and replaced it with the Chinese flag. Here is the truth. Sensata took down our American flag on the day they flew in our Chinese replacements that we were forced to train. They put our American flag back up after the Chinese workers left. They never flew the Chinese flag.”
I’ve also been attempting to contact a spokesperson for the workers directly, with no response yet, but I think it’s probably safe to say that if the plant owners had placed that small flag on the fence in the video, that would have been mentioned in this statement. My apologies for any confusion created by my statements about the Chinese flag.
