The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) is a federal law that protects workers and job applicants age 40 and over from age-based discrimination in all aspects of employment.
Employers both large and small are ignoring the law.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average age of workers in technology is only 31. Age discrimination in finance, entertainment, and even the public sector has also run amok.
Anyone can join the Gray Panthers and help us fight Age Discrimination in Employment. It takes organization and perseverance, but together, we can end this scourge in every sector.
