Drunk on the job

Here in the UK it would be out of the question to turn up to work drunk. Not only would it affect the quality of your work but the health and safety issues would be a nightmare! In fact if you were operating heavy machinery or driving it would be illegal!

This view is not shared by Peru's top court which has ruled that workers cannot be fired for being drunk. The Government has criticised the ruling as it could set a dangerous precedent. Let's hope that people stick to soft drinks such as the local Inca Cola (more popular than Coca Cola in Peru).
