Ranch - JOKE

A man owned a small ranch in New Mexico. The New Mexico Wage & Hour Dept. claimed he 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," replied the rancher, "There's my ranch hand who's been with me for 3 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 per week plus free room and board. Then there's the half-wit who works about 18 hours every day and does about 90% of all the work around here. He makes about $10 per week, 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 the rancher.

I think it would ring true for most small business owners! They always work the hardest for the least amount of pay! lol
