Quote:

Scores of Carlsberg workers walked off their jobs in protest Thursday after the Danish brewer tightened laid-back rules on workplace drinking and removed beer coolers from work sites, a company spokesman said.

The warehouse and production workers in Denmark are rebelling against the company's new alcohol policy, which allows them to drink beer only during lunch hours in the canteen. Previously, they could help themselves to beer throughout the day, from coolers placed around the work sites.

Here, they cut your salary instead of your beer.

This is the sort of thing labor unions were meant to address. These workers need to unionize post-haste.

For me that's the same thing when it's all said and done.

Fire them all and hire new people.

People who will be grateful to drink free beer at lunch.

Don't know if it's true, but I read in some article that there's been some issues since the bridge between Sweden and Denmark was built and more construction companies started to build and hire on the other side of the channel.

Don't recall the details, but everyone wasn't fine with everyone's lunch habits.

Construction workers.

Not surprising at all.

In the words of Samuel Gompers, "What do unions want? More... and more... and more... and more."

An ash I know, Yggdrasil its name. With water white is the great tree wet; thence come the dews that fall in the dales. Green by Urth's well does it ever grow.

This might be one of the multitude of reasons why Denmark is rated by its citizens (and the world) as the best place to live on Earth. The highest happiness index.

Sure, this might drop that a tick or two.

My company provides 6 different draft beers from 3:30 to 5:00 every Friday in our cafeteria.

I may have to show this article to our California office. It's just cruel to schedule meetings during our East Coast Beer Bash.

It's a brewer, waddaya expect.
My wife once worked for a big Dutch brewer at the reception. Opposite the reception was the inhouse bar. Guy in suit brought her a beer, in the afternoon. My wife declined "can't drink while working." The guy replied "Hey, it's a brewery and I'm the CEO. If you want a beer, drink a beer."

Perhaps we need to send a UN force to ensure there are no more human-beer-rights violations.

One of the good million things about Denmark has to do with beer. Many years ago each man had the right to drink 10 liters of beer per day. My guess is that it works as a cultural thing. Just like guns in US except that it's not that bad. It's just beer!
