..... argues his point that training classes are important and not only for the Generation Xers. Beyak and Caudron both discuss the age group of 20 to 30 years old, but Caudron and Beyak differ in what they feel the fate of these youths have. Generation Xers use training classes to be able to keep the jobs they want or to be able to find other types of employment. Beyak argues that youth or adults are not able to find employment that will meet their needs. Beyak blames others for the problems that the youth have. Personally, both authors have good arguments.
