BMW staffs plant with over 50s

BMW has decided to invest a large sum of money on retaining a classic line-up – but rather than cars, it's older workers which are getting the special treatment as the German manufacturer staffs an entire production line with over 50 employees.

A section of the plant at Dingolfing in Bavaria, southern Germany, has been nicknamed 'Altstadt' (German for Old Town) and has been specially adapted to meet the needs of older workers.
