When I was writing an essay about whether authorities should change the retirement age depending on the type of profession, I wrote the following sentence. Through the bold phrases, what I wanted to express was people who are over 50 years old. I would really appreciate it if someone could let me know whether the usages are acceptable or not in terms of grammar. Furthermore, please give me any other alternative ways to indicate people over 50.


For example, carpenters and plumbers might find it really difficult to fulfill the customers's requirements properly after 50.


Were they for instance, to keep over 50 employees who are generally vulnerable in the company for tasks that need a strenuous effort to complete, it might eventually pose insidious negative implications for the business.

That means the number of employees in the company is more than 50.

dileepawho are generally vulnerable in the company

That does not make sense.

dileepapose insidious negative implications

Poor word use.

Skilled laborers such as carpenters and plumbers over the age of 50 may not have the strength, flexibility and dexterity to perform the tasks themselves, but they have the experience to be successful supervisors and direct younger people to complete the work to the satisfaction of customers.

Companies should give their older more experienced workers supervisory jobs because they are more valuable in that role and have less of a chance of being injured if they try to do the heavy work themselves.

Your topic will be considered as age discrimination in this country. Also, strong labor unions will never happen. Having said that, here is how I would approach the concerning topic.

People who are employed in trades, such as carpenters, plumbers, and steelworkers, etc are skilled laborers. These occupations require uncompromised physical stamina, mental concentration, and dexterity on their jobs every day. As their knowledge and skill seasoned, unfortunately, age is slowly becoming a factor that at some point, they may find themselves "losing a step" in job performance as their approach 50, and beyond....
