Re: Mitt Romney’s “unique qualifications” to be president (letter, 10-31).

Romney and Bain Capital may have brought forth several new businesses, but they are all low-wage businesses. Romney and Bain closed many good manufacturing business and sent them overseas. Go to Toys R Us, Sealy, Sports Authority, etc., and look were their products are manufactured – mostly in China (with toxic levels of lead); very few are made in the United States. The jobs at Dunkin’ Donuts, Domino’s and Burger King are not career jobs.

People like Romney shipped all the good jobs to foreign lands. Romney is just another rich guy, interested in crony capitalism.
