  • French pub fined for "undeclared labour" because customers returned glasses to bar

    http://www.independent.co.uk/news/bu...r-9018432.html

    French officials have fined a pub in Brittany €9,000 for “undeclared labour” after a customer returned some empty glasses to the bar.

    For customers at the Mamm-Kounifl concert-café in Locmiquélic, carrying drinks trays and used glasses back to the bar was a polite tradition.

    But for social security agency URSAFF, it was also an infringement of labour laws because customers were acting like waiters, French local newspaper Le Télégramme reported.

    “Around half-past midnight, a customer returned a drinks tray. She passed by the bar to go to the toilets. That was when it all kicked off. My husband was pinned against the glass by a man. A woman leapt on me, showing her ID card and that’s when I realised it was a URSSAF check. They told me I had been caught using undeclared labour,” owner Markya Le Floch told Le Télégramme.

    “It is a scam. We haven’t committed any wrong doing,” she added.
    Thanks liberals.

    Undeclared labour is all the more pernicious when the proletariat have been brainwashed and are thus unaware of their involuntary servitude.

        Wonder if French McD's and other fast food places have customers emptying trays in the trash and returning them to the holders overhead, as they do here in the USA. Or if that's also fined.

            After learning that rape wasn't illegal in France, I'm not surprised at anything stupid and inane that the French do.

                Really??? Can I have a valid source for that claim?

                      Looked it up. Rapeis illegal in France! Where'd Just Some Dude get the idea it wasn't? Though it looks like that law was passed in 1980, which is still pretty bad, if true.

                        And, double checking my resources shows that I didn't do my research very well, and I may have gotten confused with the law prior to 1980 with modern law. Very bad misinformation on my part, and I am very sorry.
