    Correct Answer
    A. No, it only applies to workers 40 years of age and older.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "No, it only applies to workers 40 years of age and older." This is because the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) is a federal law in the United States that prohibits discrimination against workers who are 40 years of age or older. It does not apply to younger workers or workers of any specific gender. Therefore, it is not good for everybody as it only protects a specific age group from age-based discrimination in employment.
