Problem

Compulsory retirement

Other Names:
Debasing retirement possibilities
Nature:

Mandatory retirement also known as enforced retirement, is the set age at which people who hold certain jobs or offices are required by industry custom or by law to leave their employment, or retire.

Claim:
There is no medical evidence that supports the theory that working after the age of 60 is bad for one's health. On the contrary, it is retirement which gives rise to such stresses that many people's health suffers. Intellectual powers are not automatically reduced after a certain age, and physical frailty does not afflict everyone. Forcing people to retire at a given age is a denial of their right to work, and deprives the workforce of experienced and proven people.
