Rancher John

Rancher John farmed a small spread in the western United States.

Concerned that he was not paying his workers properly, the state's Wage and Hour Division sent an agent to interview him.

“I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them,” demanded the agent.

“Well,” replied John, “There's my ranch hand, who's been with me for three years. I pay him $600 a week, plus free room and board.

"The cook has been here for 18 months, and I pay her $500 a week, plus free room and board.

"Then there's the half-wit who works about 18 hours every day and does about 90 percent of all the work around here. He makes about $10 per week, pays his own room and board, and I buy him a bottle of bourbon every Saturday night.”

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

“That would be me,” replied John.
