Question appeared in IELTS exam held on19th November in the evening slot.
Q- Some countries allow old people to work at any age they want. Do the advantages outweigh the disadvantages? (19th November, Evening slot)
A- The elderly are allowed to work as long as they want to in a select few countries. Even if this phenomenon has certain disadvantages, they pale in comparison to the advantages.
The working age for senior persons has been comparatively raised, even unrestricted in some countries, due to the fact that older people account for a sizable portion of the current population and have been on the rise in recent decades. The likelihood that an elderly person will be able to sustain himself or herself increases when he or she works. As a result, the elderly person will be less dependent on their children and, in some cases, may even be able to provide for them financially. In addition, younger workers are not only less financially burdened, but older workers with more experience working are also better able to complete the task than young workers with specialized training.
However, because of the technological revolution, economics as a whole has made some significant strides, and it is anticipated that the task now calls for new labor forces who are creative, accurate, and quick to adapt to new changes. Accordingly, the act of raising the retirement age indirectly increases unemployment, especially among young people who have more cutting-edge ideas to replace older workers who are no longer acceptable.
To conclude, the continued employment of older people is somewhat detrimental to the growth of the community. Therefore, a nation should think about fairly balancing the number of workers and adjusting an appropriate retirement age.
