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.

    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.
