Topic lần này thuộc thể loại account essay, về nguyên nhân, hậu quả và cách giải quyết ^^.Topic: In some countries, it can be very difficult for people over the age of 50 to get a good jobs, despite their experience.
What do you think are the causes and effects of this problem, and what measures could be taken to solve it?
Nowadays, in many countries people over the age of 50 are very difficult to get a good jobs although they have a lot of experience. It is clearly seen that people should be aware of the causes and some effects of this problem in order to look for some necessary measures to bring job opportunities to older people. As far as I am concerned, the problem comes from many different sources but the main cause is that
people over the age of 50 are very hard to adopt changes. They would be more inactive and inflexible than younger people. Take for example technology which renovates very quickly. According to a recent research by Ministry of Labour Invalids and Social Affairs, elderly people need a longer time to learn how to use new technology than youngsters because almost new equipments are imported from foreign countries. The usage instruction of these equipments requires a basic knowledge of foreign language which is rarely taught in the older generation. Another reason leading to this problem is at their disadvantage in term of health. Biologically, people easily get some health problems such as sickness, diabetes, etc…when they are older. Their health problem can influence the effectiveness of work. Apart from two above reasons needs also to carry a good part of the blame, the elderly people usually require higher pay in that they must cover the daily needs not only of them but also of other members in their family. Most of people over the age of 50 involved in the latest survey supposed that the employer has to pay higher for them because the financial situation of many companies is not good at the moment and the employer might not be willing to pay a lot of money for the position they need. Regarding the effect of this problem, I think one of the most negative effects is that
if the employer does not hire the older people who have full of experience, it will lead to the wastefulness of human resource. Another damaging impact is the shortage of labour, especially the expert, because almost people over the age of 50 regularly work in many fields so they can gather a lot valuable information and experience. The final effect is that it places more financial burden on governments. The older people just live on the pension and welfare which government provides for the reason that they are the unemployed people. The problem, however, is not insurmountable if it is approached realistically. In my opinion, the most effective method is
opening office courses for the older people to retrain. People over the age of 50 must review whatever they learned in order to apply for their work. The courses relating to office activities would be a suitable solution for them to get a good job. A further possibility is for the older people to apply for suitable jobs in term of experience they have, for example, teacher of lawyer. A final step is to raise employer’s awareness of potential benefits when hiring people over the age of 50. By doing this, more opportunities for the elderly people to get a good job are created.
To my view, not only people over the age of 50 should be aware of the causes and effects of this problem but also other people especially the government must join together to solve this problem. This can not be done overnight, but I hope that the problem will be solved in the near future.
