Beer Strike

Carlsberg There's been a recent strike in Copenhagen at the Carlsberg brewery.  Apparently, Carlsberg reduced the number of free beers available to workers during the day, and the workers are none too pleased.   (That's right, the number of free beers during the day, while they're working.)  The strike has been effective, and is threatening supplies to buyers, so the workers may succeed.

I think we've just found the answer to the declining U.S. union density rate:  Want free beer at work?  Join a union!

Let's just hope that any givebacks are purely prospective.
