paying proper wages

  1. A man owned a small farm in Indiana . The Indiana State Wage & Hour
    Department claimed he was not paying proper wages to his help and sent
    an agent out to
    interview him. "I need a list of your employees and how much you pay
    them," demanded the agent. " Well," replied the farmer, "there's my farm
    hand who's been with me for 3 years. I pay him $200 a week plus free
    room and board. The cook has been here for 18 months, and I pay her $150
    per week plus free room and board. Then there's the half-wit who works
    about 18 hours every day and does about 90% of all the work around here.
    He makes about $10 per week, pays his own room and board, and I buy him
    a bottle of bourbon every Saturday night. He also sleeps with my wife
    occasionally." "That's the guy I want to talk to --- the half-wit," says
    the agent.

    "That would be me," replied the farmer.
