Debate: Laid off

59 year old laid off, can't find work.
Dan: 5th worst for people laid off, looking for work. Easier, maybe free for you to be retrained. Reach out, help in unemployment offices. People now waiting 6 mos for assistance they could get in 5 or 6 days. More important, we are not listening, understanding what is going on in your life.
Ned: People just want an opportunity to get back to work. At CTWorks, people lined up in rain. Many had been employed for 20+ years, thought they would retire and boom! No job. I have created jobs. I know how to get companies hiring again. We need nurses, doctors, engineers. Training. This state is falling behind, we need to change.
