In singapore many of us desire to live longer but fear the negative aspects that will come as we ages. When we reach our 50s and 60s it's harder to find a job when I need of more money. Due to company unable to view elderly as depositories of experience and skills that can be tapped. If elderly are allowed to display their experience and knowledge for the workforce there would be better productivity and economic. But our culture prejudice them.
In my opinion, elderly in singapore are assets instead of liability. The elderly has survive in the world up till now means that their experience are more than us so if they are allowed to display that experience they can help out the younger ones who are inexperience. If elderly are allowed to work they can reduce the financial burden of younger generation.
