Leggett & Platt bucking gay rights trend

Carthage-based Fortune 500 company Leggett & Platt is bucking industry trends in its fight against a proposal that would ban discrimination based on sexual orientation, according to a Fortune magazine article.
The article mentions a number of companies that have adopted anti-discrimination policies, including Wal-Mart, while noting that Leggett & Platt is opposing the shareholder proposal, which is scheduled to come to a vote during the annual meeting May 10 in Carthage.
For more information about the proposal, check out this post from the March 31 Turner Report.
