I am honing my essay writing skills to prepare for an English proficiency test that will be held the first week of June. I would like to expand my vocabulary, especially with reference to economics, politics and technology. Would you please correct my essay below? I would be grateful if you could show me more proper ways to express my opinion.

[Topic] Japan should introduce summer time in the near future.

My answer: I don't agree with the idea that Japan should introduce summer time in the near future for the following two reasons.
First, it is bound to encourage Japanese companies to demand workers to work overtime without pay. If workers start their work an hour earlier, they are likely to end up having to work until late as before. It brings no benefits to workers, but just makes the working condition even worse.
Second, it is not very easy to adjust to the transition to the summer time or the winter time for everyone. Some people must find it harder, for example, older people, young children and sick people. The introduction of the summer time affects not only those people's health and conditions but also of people who are engaged in taking care of them.
For these reasons, I don't agree with the idea that Japan should introduce summer time in the near future.

I am wondering if you need "the" with "summer time".
The first argument could be my real concern if I am not working at my current school. I had never worked with a boss who won't ask me for working overtime before. My former bosses took it as granted that I started working 1 hour earlier and never liked to see my leaving school at time. I had not been allowed to leave at time. Honestly, the introduction of the summer time leads the increase of death and suicide from overwork, I believe so.
