Confectionery Manufacturer

Situation puzzles (sometimes called lateral thinking puzzles) are ones where you need to ask lots of yes or no questions to figure out what happened in the situation. These are good puzzles for groups where one person knows the puzzle and answers the questions.

A manufacturer of confectionery has a work force of thousands of workers. They never strike or demand better conditions. They work up to twenty hours per day and receive no wages except food and shelter. Yet every year a completely new work force is brought in and none of the existing workers are re-employed. Why?

Bees don't live that long. They would have to replace the workforce every 6-8 weeks.

I was thinking something like yeast, but you'd have to replace it every batch...

Very tricky - I was thinking maybe the "workforce" were machines, and that they had to be replaced every year or so.
