Arne finally got his Arne pension: Half a century on the floor was celebrated with pranks and robber stories

“Now it’s Arne’s turn.” The words were written on election posters and bus stops throughout Denmark when Arne Juhl became the face of the Social Democrats’ election campaign in 2019. We were with the brewery worker from Southern Jutland at a pub when it was actually his turn, and after 48 grueling years on the floor he finally got it pension scheme to which he himself has put his name.
