LR Poll: My Rights vs. Yours
Two proposals dealing with executive pay, and two more addressing human rights issues, all failed to gain a majority vote at the Cisco Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: CSCO) shareholder meeting yesterday, judging from preliminary counts.
Still, they got some noteworthy support, particularly after Yahoo Inc. (Nasdaq: YHOO)'s adventures in Congress last week. (See Cisco Voters Down Human Rights Proposal and Moral 'Pygmies'.)
We'd like to know where your vote stands, and whether you think it's reasonable to demand more of corporations when it comes to human rights issues. To cast your vote in our new poll, click here.
Meanwhile -- we do understand that shareholder meetings aren't as exciting as, say, World Cup football, but we took some photos anyway. So, please take a moment and relive the magic:
