Swiss media mocks Macedonian Govt snow clean-up efforts


It’s the Swiss turn now. A video of a worker employed by Tetovo’s city service for cleaning up snow went viral not just in Macedonia, but outside as well.

The worker is seated in a tiny truck, scoops what we believe is salt and tosses it over his shoulder to ensure drivers don’t slip and slide on the roads. Arguably, some parents put more salt in the food than this guy.

It is no accident then that this video went viral not just in Macedonia, but in Switzerland as well picked up by Blick. Understandably, there is a great deal of mocking in Blick’s article, wondering perhaps if this is an actual prank by city employees or has the country really fallen to such depths. We can confirm it’s the latter.
