Should the mandatory retirement system be abolished?

Essay

 I strongly believe that the mandatory retirement system should be abolished for the three following reasons.
 The first reason is that it will boost the morale of elderly workers. It is discouraging for many elderly people that they will be forced to retire even though they want to continue to work. If the mandatory retirement system is abolished, they can keep working and moreover, company can retain capable workforce.
 The second reason is that any kind of discrimination is simply wrong. It is morally reprehensible to judge that elderly people cannot work effectively. In fact, elderly people with a lot of experience can be more capable than young people who don’t have enough practical experience.
 The third reason is that the basic standard of living should be ensured to everyone. In this aging society where the amount of pension is reduced and medical expenses are rising, it is difficult for many elderly people just to make ends meet. Hence we should provide the elderly with job opportunities.
 As I mentioned, for the aforesaid three reasons, I strongly believe that the mandatory retirement system should be abolished.
