Brewery Workers Can't Strike Because Beer is "Vitally Essential"
... according to a Lithuanian court in a Carlsberg beer case. Thank god! "The company successfully argued that no strike should take place during its 'high season.'" "High season"? Detail here. [JH]
Wow! What a headline! I was immature and had to giggle some. But seriously, if Carlsburg knows it's US market, they know that it is one of the top beers in the LGBT market. If they mobilize, lookout! Not to mention a host of other activists, armchair and otherwise.
But seriously: Beer and an essential product akin to water and emergency services? In my younger years I would been snarky and defended it as a joke. No joke for workers. Sunshine is the best disinfectant!
