A BAR in Barcelona is breaking the mould, not because of what they are serving up, but because of who is doing the serving.

In a unique move, Entrepanes Diaz, a trendy bar in the heart of the Catalan capital, is now only hiring waiters over 50.Waiter

And with two million people aged between 45 and 64 out of work across the country, owner Kim Diaz is urging more bosses to follow suit.

“I am only looking for waiters who are over 50 because I know they have been unjustly pushed them out of the job market,” she said.

“Young people work in bars as a stopgap before moving on to something else, older members of staff see it as a vocation and have a lifetime of experience behind them as well.”


  1. Great move – not only do you get better service, but no doubt no more excuses “I can’t come into work today, I have a headache…” Of course not all youngsters are unreliable, but it’s good to see the older generation have a job opportunity for once.
