Retirement is an issue with which almost every person will face in his\her life. According to world statistics, a common age, when we should retire, is between 60 and 65 years old. Some people take it for granted and maintain a retirement policy, while others claim that pensioners should be allowed to work as long as they wish.
Some aged people appreciate an ability to work after the retirement. This gives them an opportunity to earn enough money to live without worrying about economic problems. They will not concern about crises or any other financial issues because they will not suffer from governmental cuts in the social sphere as the other not working people will do. For instance, russian pensioners basically receive an extremely low pension, which sometimes can be lower than a living wage. In this situation, people of a retirement ages are forced to work to provide basic needs. Another situation is in the China, where a pension does not exist at all. If chinese pensioners want to exist, they work.
However, whether it is safe to leave an old person at any working position? It is widely known, that retirement reform is implemented as a necessary measure. Although pensioners want to continue their working, they may have some medical restrictions. The most common problems are bad vision, limited activity, and decreased possibilities to hear. Moreover, need to remember that this category of people becomes more vulnerably to different deases like Altscheimer or hypertension, what could cause a harm to themselves or even to the company where they serve.
I personally feel that here must not be a dicrimination towards aged people or any restrictions for their future working even after the retirement. If a pensioner wants and is able to work, he\she should be allowed to.
