The Department of Employment believed a boat owner wasn't paying proper wages to his help.
An agent was sent to his fishing village to investigate.
GOVERNMENT AGENT: "I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them".
"Well, there’s Clarence, my hired hand. He’s been with me for 3 years.
I pay him $200 a week plus free room and board.
Then there’s the mentally challenged guy.
He works about 18 hours every day and does about 90% of the work around here. He makes about $10 per week, and pays his own room and board. I buy him a bottle of Lamb’s rum and a dozen Coors Lite every Saturday night so he can cope with life. Also, he gets to sleep with my wife occasionally".
“That’s the guy I want to talk to - the mentally challenged one”.
“That’ll be me. What’d you want to know?”
