    Who wouldn't want to be a Wolfsberger??

    How times have changed. I have the Peugeot publications of this that talks about the cars and working lives of a Sochauxian. They make it sound like the best job in the world but there is always a darker side to the story. Wasn't there a case of some people trying to take VW werk to court over working conditions and slavery. But what slavery, they gave you a swimming pool.

  7. Factory life is never as good as it looks on paper. Working conditions these days are probably good. Most of the repetitive jobs are now probably done by robots. :)
     
  8. Great pics :)
