News, but not the serious kind
I’m drunk as a Peruvian janitor!
It turns out that Peru’s top court has ruled that workers cannot be fired for being drunk on the job.
It so happens that the guy in this court case was a janitor, but the government said two other workers they’ve fired for showing up drunk were DRIVERS.
So, how long until we hear from other professions wanting the same rights? I’m talking about air traffic controllers, dentists, SWAT team snipers….
And you know where this will end up? Somebody’s going to want the right to BLOG drunk!
Anyway, until this awful court decision is reversed, let’s all remember what they say: Friends don’t let friends work in Peru!
