Employment Standards determined a small woodworking shop owner 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, there’s Jake my finisher who’s been with me for 3 years, I pay him $900 a week.

The apprentice Tom has been here for 6 months, and I pay him $500 a week.

Then there’s the half-wit that works here about 18 hours a day. He makes $10 a week and I buy him a case of beer every Friday,” replied the owner.

“That’s the guy I want to talk to; the half-wit,” says the agent.”

The owner says, “That would be me.”
