Italian unions criticise museum chief of Royal Palace of Caserta for working too hard

By working too many hours and staying past closing time at his on-site office, Mauro Felicori puts the entire museum at risk, say angry unions

    Good grief, how long of a front yard is that?

    • Must take a week to cut;)

        I had a crappy lawnmower like that once. 😉

          Yeah. Then I divorced her!

  • BillyHW

    Isn’t it about time unions contributed something to humanity?

  • Icebow

    A beautiful place. Just a little out of my budget range, I suspect.

    • sheikyermami

      You can’t own it. You can visit for a fee. That’s the idea.

    “”The only thing that is really at risk here is the interests of those wrapped up in the old system in Campania””
    Bingo.

  • V10_Rob

    Working violates the union agreement.

    Italians like to retire very early and like their pensions. That is why the country isn’t doing to well :/

    • CodexCoder

      Remind you of any province or country? Greece, Ontario, California…

      • DavidinNorthBurnaby

        BC fer sure.

      • k1962

        Very much like Greece with the others soon to follow.

        • David Murrell

          Italy will follow Greece into the sewer.

    Mauro Felicori deserves a medal for his hard work and dedication to the upkeep of a national monument.

  • andycanuck

    So they’re just like the union guys here.

    Not to worry, in a couple weeks mo-ham-heads inbred nephews will be living there and using the pool as a toilet…then the unions will have plenty to keep them busy, right?

    I remember the days when working for the federal public service when we were not allowed to change a light bulb or shift a piece of furniture, because those were union jobs. If you just went ahead and did it, not wanting to wait for a union member with this in his job description finally showed up, the union filled a grievance. They had the same attitude to union members who actually worked hard. Keep in mind that there was no possibility of opting out of being a dues paying union member, thanks to more judicial activism in Canada.
