Apple CEO Tim Cook had some words to say in a column on The Wall Street Journal. CNN reports that Tim Cook is pressing for the successful passage of a federal law that protects workers from discrimination based on their sexual orientation. “It’s a good business practice,” Cook said, as it’s always best for employees to be able to be themselves – their best selves – in order to give their greatest effort in the workplace. “For too long, too many people have had to hide that part of their identity in the workplace,” said Cook.
The Employment Non-Discrimination Act, known as ENDA, needs 60 votes in the Senate today to avoid being subject to a filibuster.
