Apple CEO Supports US Employment Non-Discrimination Act

Tim Cook recently displayed voluble advocacy of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act. It is yet to be passed by Congress. In an op-ed written in WSJ, Tim stated clearly that all LGBT individuals had a right to their sexual orientation. To harass them at the job simply due to their personal preference was anathema. And this was especially so in a free society such as the United States. 

The rules regarding hiring and firing are about to get changed. Apple Incorporated is a conglomerate that values all who enter its ranks. The CEO spoke of how his firm showed zero tolerance for any form of racism, male chauvinism or gay-bashing. A person’s race, gender or sexual activities were no one’s business except for that person alone.

Tim Cook said that it was the duty of the Senate and House of Representatives to vote for and then pass this bill. The bill will be up for voting on the 4th of November, 2013. Apple Incorporated provides a warm and secure environment for its workers. 

They are treated like family and no racial discrimination, misogyny or eve-teasing is allowed in the office premises. Tim said that these were basic human rights that came directly after food, clothing and shelter. Furthermore, the act has the backing of President Barack Obama. It has been in the news recently as well.
