older American on the job or looking for work should be judged on anything
other than how well they can do their job – but in a recent AARP study, nearly
2 in 3 workers said they had seen or experienced age discrimination. And, right
now, they’re fighting with one hand tied behind their backs.
years ago, a Supreme Court ruling weakened our nation’s age discrimination
laws, making it harder for workers to prove age discrimination than any other
type of workplace discrimination case including race, gender, and religion. Congress
has a chance to change that. A new, bipartisan, age discrimination bill (H.R. 1230) would help level the playing field for older workers and restore
their rights to fight back against age discrimination. Your Member of Congress
has the chance to be a champion for older workers by co-sponsoring this
critical legislation. But they need to
hear from people like you.
Discrimination is discrimination. Tell your Member of Congress to join
the fight against age discrimination by co-sponsoring H.R.1230. Use the
form below to send your message to your Member of Congress today.
By taking action you will join AARP's online network and will receive urgent news and action alerts about the issues that matter the most to older Americans, as well as information about AARP activities, events, and member benefits.
