...AGE 60 RULE Employees should not be laid off based on the aging factor.

If the employer’s aim is to ensure public safety, then they must determine that age is a direct factor for the safety. The skills of pilots can be assessed accurately, regardless of age, on an individual basis (Elias, p. 43). This automatically disqualifies the reliance on a maximum age limit.

This means that the rule should... THE AGE 60...

States which do not conform to the act risk losing federal transportation funds. A large number of studies deal with the MLDA as an alcohol control policy, and it is the subject of several essays. Most of the studies focus on motor vehicle crashes, which is the leading cause of death in teenagers. The MLDA has proponents and opponents, who hold fast to their respective positions in this debate (American Medical Association, n.d.). Morris E. Chafetz, in “The 21-Year-Old Drinking Age: I Voted for it; It Doesn't Work,” and Toben F... Minimum Legal Drinking Age:...
