This is especially important for unemployed plus 50 adults, who tend to take longer than their younger counterparts to find work. Moreover, 30 percent of the nation’s fastest-growing occupations require education beyond high school. Training and credentials from community colleges will help plus 50 adults remain in or return to the workforce.
