Unemployment Pay

Two guys who worked together were both laid off, so off they go to the unemployment office.

Asked his occupation, the first guy says, "Panty stitcher. I sew the elastic onto cotton panties."

The clerk looked up panty stitcher. Finding it classed as unskilled labor, she gives him $300, a week's unemployment pay.

The second guy was asked his occupation.

"Diesel fitter," he replies.

Since diesel fitter is a skilled job the clerk gives the second guy $600 a week.

When the first guy finds out he's furious. He storms back in to find out why his friend and co-worker is collecting double his pay. The clerk explains: "Panty stitchers are unskilled and diesel fitters are skilled labor."

"What skill?" yells the panty stitcher. "I sew the elastic on and he pulls on it and says, 'Yep, diesel fitter.'"
