Ann Posted March 3, 2009 Share Posted March 3, 2009 A man owned a small contracting business in Ontario. The Ontario governments' Wage & Hours Department claimed he was not paying proper wages to his staff 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,' replied the owner, 'there's my framer who's been with me for 3 years. I pay him $600 a week plus free room and board. The site man has been here for 18 months, and I pay him $550 per week plus free room and board. Then there's the half-wit. He works about 18 hours every day and does about 90% of all the work around here. He makesabout $300 per week, pays his own room and board, plus I buy him a bottle of bourbon every Saturday night. Occasionally, he will sleep with my wife..''That's the guy I want to talk to...the half-wit,' says the agent. That would be me,' replied the owner.
