JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) Actor John Goodman is featured in a radio ad opposing a right-to-work law on Missouris Aug. 7 ballot.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Tuesday that the ad is airing in the St. Louis market.
Goodman says the law is marketed as a way to help workers. But he tells voters to look a little deeper, and youll see its all about corporate greed.
Goodman starred on Roseanne. He went to high school and college in Missouri.
Mattel, the maker of Barbie and Hot Wheels, said Wednesday it is laying off 2,200 workers or 22 percent of its corporate workforce as sales slide following the liquidation of Toys R Us.
The toy giant, based in El Segundo, Calif., said sales fell for the fourth consecutive quarter as it struggled to make up for lost business from the closure of nearly 800 Toys R Us stores across the country. Revenue dropped 14 percent to $841 million in the most recent quarter, while losses continued to mount.
There has been a big discrepancy between our financial performance over the last few years and where the company should be, chief executive Ynon Kreiz said in a statement.
Shares of Mattel fell as much as 9 percent in after-hours trading following the announcement.
The young man was very pleasant offered me literature which I declined as I had already long ago decideed to vote No on Prop A as I oppose RTW.
Hope that my fellow Missourians will make an effort to vote on August 7th and Vote No on Prop A and in doing so support Unions and their members.
