  • Ranch Worker's Return On Investment

    A man owned a small 9,800 acre ranch in Alberta. The Labour Relations Board sent an agent out to interview him as a result of a complaint that he was not paying proper wages to his hired help.

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

    "Well, there are my hired hands - one has been with me for four years, and the other for three. I pay them each $600 a week, plus free room and board. The cook has been here for 18 months, and I pay her $900 a month plus free room and board. Then there's the half-wit that works here about 18 hours a day. He takes home $10 a week and I buy him a bottle of rye about once a month," replied the rancher.

    "That's the guy I want to talk to - the half-wit," said the agent.

    The rancher then said, "That would be me."
