Labor department accuses old cowboy of not paying proper wages at his ranch: His response is gold

This cowboy was being investigated for not paying living wages to his employees.

But when asked about a certain underpaid employee… he said this.

A man owned a small ranch near Sheridan, Wyoming. The Wyoming Labor Department got a tip that he was not paying proper wages to his help and sent an investigator out to interview him.

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


”Well”, replied the rancher.

”There’s my ranch hand who’s been with me for 3 years. I pay him $1200 a week plus free room and board”.

He continued:

”The cook has been here for 18 months, and I pay her $1000 per week plus free room and board”.

”Then there’s the half-wit. He works about 18 hours every day, with no days off, and does about 90% of all the work around here. He makes about $10 per week and pays his own room and board”.

The ranch owner stared at the investigator. and then said:

”But, I buy him a bottle of bourbon every Saturday night, and he also sleeps with my wife occasionally”.

”That’s the guy I want to talk to… the half-wit”, says the investigator.

”You’re talking to him”, replied the rancher.
