Some people believe that if people are allowed to work after the age of 60, it would cause problems for younger. Do you agree or disagree?

Recently, the debate on allowing
people
to
work
after the age of 60 has become heated. As far as I am concerned, I do not think
this
would cause problems for younger.
Firstly
, the employment rate of the youngsters might not be directly affected. Some
people
might claim that when the elderly can
work
for a longer time, the job places for the younger generation would decrease.
However
, in many countries, for ,example Hong Kong and Singapore, the elderly are usually doing some low-skilled
work
like guards and drivers. Because of the education inflation, many young
people
nowadays might not be willing to apply for these jobs,
therefore
, prolonging the working time for the elderly would not affect the job opportunities for the younger.
Secondly
, allowing the elderly to
work
for a longer time might reduce young
people
's
burden
. Since many elderly might need to live on the subsidy when they get retired, the elderly in some countries with a high cost of living like Hong Kong, or elderly in some developing countries like Vietnam, might not have enough capital for living after their retirement.
Therefore
,
this
might increase their children's
burden
or even the
burden
for the taxpayers.
As a result
, lengthening the working period for the elderly can ease the social's
burden
. To summarise, allowing
people
to
work
after the age of 60 might not only not have a direct effect on the employment rate of the young
people
, but
also
can help ease the social
burden
.
Therefore
, we should be willing to embrace
this
situation. After analysing
this
problem, I think the trend for working after the 60s might prevail.
