Protecting Older Workers Against Discrimination Act: A Survey of Kentucky Voters Ages 50+ (POWADA)

To determine public views on older workers, age discrimination, and the Protecting Older Workers Against Discrimination Act (POWADA), AARP conducted a survey of older voters in Kentucky.

Key findings from the survey show:

  • Over one in four older voters in Kentucky report that they or someone they know has recently experienced age discrimination in the workplace.
  • About nine in ten older voters in Kentucky say it is important for Congress to take action and restore workplace protections against age discrimination.
  • Across party and ideological lines, older voters in Kentucky support the Protecting Older Workers Against Discrimination Act (POWADA).
  • More than eight in ten older voters in Kentucky want their Member of Congress to support POWADA.

The survey was conducted for AARP by Woelfel Research Inc. in April 2014 with a random sample of registered voters age 50 and over in Kentucky.
