According to the Star Tribune two shareholders voiced disagreement with General Mills’ stance in opposition to the Minnesota marriage amendment. I wonder who those two might be and how much stock they own. Any guesses? 😉

CEO Ken Powell said:

We see it as a business issue
that’s not good for our state, our employees and our company. We did not
do it as a public relations move.

Two other shareholders commended General Mills for its stance. One
agreed that changing the state constitution over marriage rights is a
business issue. Another said simply, “I would like to commend you for
taking a stand on discrimination of any kind in the workplace.”

And NOM’s take? General Mills Shareholders Take Company to Task Over SSM Endorsement. What a surprise.
