Apple CEO Tim Cook Calls on the United States Congress

The bill known as the Employment Non-Discrimination Act has been passed by the Senate, but according to 9 to 5 mac, has struggled to make it through the House of Representatives. The law would prohibit companies with 15 or more employees from discriminating based on sexual orientation or gender. The Employment Non-Discrimination Act has been introduced in every Congress since 1994 except the 109th. The act will protect workers against discrimination and violence that is based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

Apple Inc. Chief Executive Tim Cook wrote an editorial in the Wall Street Journal in 2013  that was urging US senators to support the Employment Non-Discrimination Act.

Tim Cook wrote in the Wall Street Journal, ”Long before I started work as the CEO of Apple, I became aware of a fundamental truth: People are much more willing to give of themselves when they feel that their selves are being fully recognized and embraced.”

Apple CEO Tim Cook used social media to Twitter on Friday and voices his position on the potential new law currently being considering by the United States Congress. The highest paid CEO in the world tweeted the quote “We shall overcome” and said “Much done but much left to do.” The Alabama native, Tim Cook, has reportedly taken an avid interest in the movement of equality, according to a report by 9 to 5 mac.

“Those who have suffered discrimination have paid the greatest price for this lack of legal protection,” said Tim Cook according to Pink News UK. “The House should mark the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act by passing ENDA,” Tim Cook tweeted to his followers.  It has been reported that U.S. President  Barack Obama supports the bill’s passage.
