If you close your eyes

You can almost here people in the audience fapping.


But see how exited Mitt is to be describing the working conditions they almost wish an American government could impose:

When I was back in my private equity days, we went to China to buy a factory there. It employed about 20,000 people. And they were almost all young women between the ages of about 18 and 22 or 23. They were saving for potentially becoming married. 

And they work in these huge factories, they made various uh, small appliances. And uh, as we were walking through this facility, seeing them work, the number of hours they worked per day, the pittance they earned, living in dormitories with uh, with little bathrooms at the end of maybe 10, 10 room, rooms. And the rooms they have 12 girls per room.

Three bunk beds on top of each other. You've seen, you've seen them? (Oh...yeah, yeah!) And, and, and around this factory was a fence, a huge fence with barbed wire and guard towers. And, and, we said gosh! I can't believe that you, you know, keep these girls in! They said, no, no, no. This is to keep other people from coming in.

The barbed wire is probably to keep MEN out, don't you think?

IIRC, none of that stopped Bain from investing, did it?

It's like saying that concentration camps really do foster the work ethic.

Or, in the original German, "arbeit macht frei."
