Investment in Older Workers Turns a Big Profit

  • Aired: 01/02/2013
  • 10:23
  • Rating: E
The average age of Vita Needle's workers is 74 years old, and that's no accident. The manufacturing company has intentionally hired seniors -- a decision that has increased profits and benefited older workers who often have a harder time finding a job. Paul Solman reports on their unique model for doing business.
