No, it's not off topic because it concerns the fulltime and parttime workers in the Leipzig plant which builds the 1-er.
What's interesting is that BMW in the past has just about guaranteed their workers job security. That's changed, obviously, and it's just a part of an overall strategy (more part time workers with less benefits, recent pressure on suppliers to cut cost/maintain quality) to increase profits.

Sounds too familiar and depressing.
