The French Ban Wine, Cider, and Beer at the Workplace!

Mon Dieu! No more wine, cider, or beer at work! Yesterday, the French government issued a decree giving employers the ability to prohibit the consumption of wine, cider, and beer at work. For many in France this new law represents an assault on their cultural history. 

In France, a drink at work to celebrate birthday's, farewells, or any other event is commonplace. The French consume an average of 2.7 alcoholic beverages per day. Wine in France is like Coca-Cola in the USA. What's next? Ban smoking in bars?
