Moving past using opcodes

I am currently an iSeries RPG 400 and RPG ILE shop. We still have programmers who use 'goto' and 'tags' processing....

How can I convince them that this is a bad practice? For example, future maintenance on their programs. I would assume that if those opcodes will no longer be supported in the future, the staff will just have to understand that moving forward is better than being out of a job.
