The Bain Worker Bus Tour pulled into Moline, Illinois Monday for a rally outside the local public library, down the street from the campaign office of Rep. Bobby Schilling (R-IL).
The traveling Bain workers were joined by Cynthia Rivers, an unemployed home healthcare worker and a constituent of Rep. Schilling who has had to move in with her father while she continues to look for work. Read more about a glimpse into a Romney Economy in Cynthia’s own words.
Calvin Johnson, a Guitar Center employee from Detroit who is traveling on the bus, spoke about his love for teaching piano and voice lessons, and his frustration that he can never seem to make ends meet no matter how many lessons he teaches. Calvin asked the crowd, “how can I get ahead or make a life for myself when I can’t save any money?”
Calvin said he wants to stop a Romney Economy because people who work hard and follow their passion should have a chance at the American Dream.
