Farmer Underpaying His Help Joke

When a rumor got around that a certain farmer was underpaying his help an inspector came to check up. "How many people do you employ?" he asked.


"Two hired men and a hired girl." said the farmer.

"I understand that you are paying them below the minimum wage, " the inspector said.

"Is that so!" said the farmer. He called the hired men and the hired girl. "Now," he said, "Tell this fellow what your wages are."

"One hundred dollars a week," each of the hired men answered. Eighty dollars a week plus room and board," answered the girl.

"Well, that's all right," the inspector said. He turned to the farmer. "Are you sure you don't employ anyone else?"

"Only the half-wit," the farmer said. "He gets his board and a little cash each week for his tobacco."

"That's disgraceful!" the inspector said. "Let me talk to him!"

"Talk to him!?" the farmer said. "Why you're talking to him right now."
