I was terminated from my part-time position in Austria in November. The reason? For having the audacity to question the draconian health and safety protocols my employer and the Austrian government were proposing at the time.
In the months that followed, the looming mandate increased the number of pecked in Austria from 65% to about 75%. The mandate officially went into effect at the beginning of February. It was suspended last week -- a mere four weeks after it had gone into effect.
If official figures are to be believed, three out of four Austrian adults have been fully pecked. That's an awful lot of protection, right? So, how's the 75% peck rate and the bold action to end the birdemic working out for that small, landlocked Alpine nation?
