VW shuts out some workers when they go home

The German giant VW has resorted to drastic measures in an attempt to keep some of their employees from working. Yes, you read that correctly. From working.

According to a BBC article, Volkswagen has decided to stop some of its Blackberry servers so that work emails will not be forwarded to some of their employees when they’re not on shift.

It all sounds great and foresighted by the company, but the new way of doing things is a result of pressure from German unions.
