The family-owned manufacturing company Vita Needle has a unique commitment to an aging workforce. The average age of an employee is 74 and the oldest employee, Rosa, is 100 ... and still going strong. She takes pride in her work on the production line and enjoys the chance to interact with other employees.   

Sign up for the AARP Money Newsletter.

In her book “Retirement on the Line,” author Caitrin Lynch uses her experience at Vita Needle to analyze the company’s commitment to an aging workforce and the employees' dedication to change society’s perspective of working in retirement.
