The workers at Harboe brewery went on strike today because the board is planning to steal their right to drink beer while working. Harboe shows us once again that it is one of the most ridiculous breweries in Denmark. What are they thinking?

It kind of makes sense to not allow workers to drink while on the clock. It just a little dangerous and seems like a lawsuit waiting to happen.

According to todays news, the brewworkers continue to strike at Harboe. They are only allowed to drink 6 beers in the restrooms during work, which is a limitation that around 90 of 200 workers can’t live with. Well, personally I wouldn’t have any problems with a limit on the numbers of Harboe beers, I was allowed to drink. Probably wouldn’t drink one (well, perhaps just a sip, if I hadn’t rated it yet!)

Skål,
Mads

You cannot be serious? Brewery workers drink! They always have, and they always shall do! That is their human right. A brewery which denies their workers their right to drink beer while working is a dead brewery!

Do piano players in brothels also get free pieces of ass during the work day?

Curious,

6 beers a day is alcoholism. They have a workforce of people with a problem... if 6 a day isn’t enough!

All things in moderation... including moderation.

In the litigious society which this country has become most are unaware that some years ago brewery workers were allowed to drink and/or given free beer. I recall the announcements of various breweries curtailing this as they were being hit by accusations from workers suggesting it fostered alcoholism. Too many want a free ride when in fact their relieving themselves of the perks. Not sure what happened over there.
