CEO of Apple says: "Anti-Gay Policies Hurt the Economy"

November 4th, 2013  |  By Emily Goldspink

Apple Inc. is one of the wealthiest and most influential companies on the globe. It is responsible for innovative ideas that have changed the world and provided the twenty-first century with new iPhone apps. Apple’s new CEO, Tim Cook is working to ban sexual discrimination in the workplace, claiming that this sort of prejudice is detrimental to the economy.



Discrimination against the gay society in the workplace is said to hinder innovative ideas in major corporations. Studies have found that anti-discrimination policies in mega corporations result in healthier, more cooperative and more committed employees. In addition, gay workers feel more open to share innovative ideas and feel more comfortable making suggestions when they feel accepted at work. Discriminated workers are less likely to allow their talent and creative ideas to reach their full potential.


Particularly in America, we’re fortunate that Congress’s hindrance to promote equality laws does not confine the workforce for gay employees. Apple Inc. supports the gay community and recognizes the struggle of their ability for their talent to be the primary decision when it comes to climbing the corporate ladder. Apple is not impacted by gay regulations and works with this demographic to create new features, new apps, and new products everyday.
