Beer brawl with a twist

In a unique stand-off, 800 workers of the Carlsberg brewery in Copenhagen, Denmark went on a four-day strike last week because they were banned from having more than one beer a day on the job. In an April 1 announcement — that turned out not to be a joke — the company cut the staff’s daily allowance of three free beers to just one beer at lunch, and removed beer from refrigerators on the premises.

Workers ended the strike on Monday, but not before causing significant delivery delays.
