The Herald reported:
COPENHAGEN – Scores of Carlsberg workers walked off their jobs in protest yesterday after the Danish brewer tightened laid-back rules on workplace drinking and removed beer coolers from work sites, a company spokesman said.
Beer Coolers. Now what work place would not be improved with them.
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.
Only drink during lunch time. Barbaric.
The only restriction was “that you could not be drunk at work. It was up to each and everyone to be responsible,” company spokesman Jens Bekke said.
I wonder how they defined drunk?
