    Why not offer it to any age? Older people who have been laid off have a more difficult time finding another job especially if they don't have the education. I know first hand with my husband. He lost his job and he has no ged or high school degree and it is very difficult to get a job or training without it. I think it should be offered to anyone who needs it.
