Beer, beer, beer, beer, wonderful beer!

The workers at the Carlsberg Brewery in Denmark walked off the job on strike when their bosses told them that they couldn’t drink free beer all day, only at lunch. The drivers still get to cart off three bottles, since they are often on the road during lunch. My favorite part of this news story — other than it reminding me of Ben Franklin’s autobiography where he decided to experiment with only drinking water regarding health and productivity while the rest of his fellow workers quaffed ale — is the reaction of the Danish government, who were surprised to hear that one of the most well known breweries in the country was supplying their workers with alcohol on the job. Way to do that government inspection, Denmark!
