I would like to commend you for taking a stand on discrimination of any kind in the workplace.

General Mills held its annual company meeting today with shareholders. At the meeting, there was both both support and criticism voiced for the company taking a public stand opposing the mean-spirited marriage amendment.
CEO, Ken Powell, once again reiterated the company’s opposition to the amendment, stating that General Mills sees this as an issue that would negatively impact their business:
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.
I’ve said it multiple times on this site, but it’s worth repeating again and again: Thank you, General Mills.
