Why should a retired government employee still have a security clearance?

I do not see a problem with the cancellation of security clearances for former public employees in the federal government. I previously worked for a major electronics company that required me to have a top-secret clearance, and when I resigned from the company, my clearance was terminated. Why is this now a problem when the president cancels the clearances for individuals who are no longer in their positions?
