Appreciation of the Excecutive Order Ruling!

I was so excited when I read the news about the Excecutive Order on LGBT Job Discrimination. First, I must thank you in advance for stopping ALL Contractors/Humans not only Federal Contractors. It's so much discrimination going on its sad. I remember reaching out to you back in January 2014 asking you to review a situation. I called time after time and was informed that I would hear from you within 6-8 weeks. I started to give up but I told myself I would continue to pray for an answer, well my prayer was answered June 16, 2014. Please continue to look into these organizations and listen to what these employees have to say about how they are being treated. It's starting with the employer reporting false allegations so they can have the employee terminated. These individuals just want to work so they can provide for their families. It does not matter of their sexual orientation, just as long as the work is completed is all that matters. Everyone deserve JUSTICE & EQUALITY!

I really wonder if Obama gets these comments from social media? The more I sit back and read the post I say to myself "Please allow Obama to not only stop discrimination for federal contractors, include all contractors". These employers do not care about individuals no matter if LGBT, disabled, age and etc. if they want to have an individual terminated they will do anything in their power to contact the contracting company and falsify allegations to have the employee terminated. I thought we lived in an EEOC world? Please stop allowing all discrimination acts we all deserve equality!! Thanking Obama and his staff in advance for JUSTICE!
