Mercedez workers allowed to watch Germany match

Night shift workers at auto giant Mercedez-Benz plants in Germany have been allowed to watch on television the World Cup semifinal between Germany and Spain.

German car company Daimler, the owner of Mercedes-Benz, has decided to let workers at one of the country’s biggest factories join the nation in the streets and bars to watch the game, The Telegraph reported.

“In all of our factories, the working hours of our staff will be tweaked or organised so that our employees have the chance to watch the semifinal,” Daimler said in a statement.
