the problem with cheap pizza
A trade organization in Finland has claimed that you can judge whether you're supporting the underground economy by the price of your pizza. Any take-out pizzas that cost less than 6 euros (or almost $9), the Finnish Hospitality Association claims, must be supporting underpaid labor in the underground economy. But the country's pie guys disagree, asserting that they're willing to put in long hours and work for low wages. As pizza merchant Ahmed Seikh noted, though "he only takes home around EUR 1,000 every month ... he’d rather have low-paid work than none at all." Ice News, which offers 'News from the Nordics', slices up this Scandinavian pizza disconnection.
