Brewery Workers Strike: No More Drinking On Job

April 9, 2010

We can’t tell if this story is funny…or hilarious:

“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.

The only restriction was ‘that you could not be drunk at work’.”

Around 800 workers walked off the job because they can no longer keep beer coolers all over the factory floor and drink beer all day while they worked. They can now only drink at lunch time, in the cafeteria.

We’ve decided: That’s hilarious!

That sounds familiar from another book of yours. The lawsuit about the drunk beer worker who got fired from the brewery.
