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.
