I would categorize this as the latter but then again I am biased. From AP...
COPENHAGEN – 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.
They went on to say that 800 workers went on strike. They’re lucky they didn’t riot. When will management learn that one of the fringe benefits of working in a brewery (where the wages aren’t that stellar to begin with… trust me on this one) is the ability to tipple on the job and that you don’t screw with that? Ever? Anyway, I won’t complain too much about Carlsberg… it was under contract to them that Louis Pasteur isolated the strain of lager yeast that most breweries and home brewers use today. But still… dude.
