Classic small business



The Newfoundland Department of Employment believed a boat owner wasn't paying proper wages to his help.

An agent was sent to the fishing village of Burin to investigate the boat owner.

GOVERNMENT AGENT:
"I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them".

BOAT OWNER:
"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 Labatt Lite every Saturday night so he can cope with life. Also, he gets to sleep with my wife occasionally".

GOVERNMENT AGENT:
"That's the guy I want to talk to - the mentally challenged one".

BOAT OWNER:
"That'll be me. What'd you want to know?

That works for Farmers too.. I grew up on a dairy farm, that's not far off from how much a small farmer makes, if that is, he's lucky.

Of course growing up on a dairy farm is good preparation for later life when you get to listen to politicians shovel the same stuff you used to shovel .
