Essay

 As the number of elderly people has been increasing and that of young people has been decreasing, the characteristics that many elderly people have will enhance and the characteristics that many young people have will decline.
 When it comes to the characteristics that many elderly people have, one of the greatest things of them is experience. Naturally, the longer people live, the more experience they have. Therefore, it is pity no to see elderly people as experienced workforce. This is an amazing side of the aging society because now we have many seasoned workforce and they are really likely to give us many advantages.
 On the other hand, when it comes to the characteristics that many young people have, one of the greatest things of them is physical strength. It is biologically natural that young people have much more physical strength than elderly people because people lose physical strength as they get older. Therefore, the physical laborer should be more respected and get paid more because they are precious.
 In conclusion, the aging society will affect workplace in a way in which we will have more seasoned workforce but less physical labor force.

メモ

高齢化社会は職場にどのような影響を与えるか?です。

序論:高齢化社会 → 高齢者の持つ特質が増し、若い人の持つ特質が減る
キーアイディア1:高齢者の持つ特質について
キーアイディア2:若い人の持つ特質について
結論:職場に、高齢者の持つ「経験」が増え、若い人の持つ「体力」が減る

という構成で書いてみました。
本文では、

高齢者のほうが、若い人より知恵と経験があるので、高齢者を、経験値の高い優秀な人材とみなすべき
高齢化社会になるということは、若い人の持つ体力が減るということなので、肉体労働者をもっと尊敬して、もっと高い給料を払うべき

ということを中心に書きました。
