Protecting Older Workers Against Discrimination Act

A survey of Nevada 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 Nevada.

Key findings from this survey show: 

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

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