    A man owned a small farm outside Kamloops. Employment Standards
    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, there's my hired 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 a month plus free room and board.
    Then there's the half-wit that works here about 18 hours a day. He
    makes $10 a week and I buy him a bottle of rye every week," replied
    the farmer.

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

    The farmer says, "That would be me."

    The Agent says I'll have to fine you $500 dollars for paying the half-wit so little wage. Farmer says I'll raise his wages. Agent then I'll have to fine you $1000 for not raising the other employees wages.

    sometimes you just can't win. :D
