Good morning, welcome to Radioactivity. I'm Rob Lorei. Coming up we'll talk with a former human resources at a Bain Capital-owned company in Miami. She'll talk about Mitt Romney's record when it comes to job creation.

But first some listener comments about last Friday's program. Here's what three listeners had to say.

The big debate in the coming presidential election is shaping up as which candidate would do a better job reducing unemployment and creating jobs. Our guest is Cindy Hewitt who worked from May 1996 to July 1998 as a human resources manager for Dade Behring, a medical manufacturing firm with facilities in Miami. The company was owned by Bain Capital, Mitt Romney's private equity firm. The Miami facilities were the most profitable plant in the Dade Behring company's operations according to Hewitt. Yet Bain ordered both South Florida facilities and more than 800 people lost their jobs. Hewitt is here to talk about the job-creation record (or non-record) of Bain Capital.
