The investigator drove up in his big flashy state vehicle and walked up to rancher flashed his badge and said "I am with the State Department of Labor and I need a complete list of your employees and how much you pay them," .
"Well," replied the rancher, "there's my barn manager over there. He's been with me for 5 years now. I pay him $600 a week plus free room and board."
"And over there is my breeding supervisor and feeder. He’s been with me 3 years and I pay him $450 a week plus free room and board. Finally there is cook - she’s over there. She has been with us almost 11 months and I pay her $325 a week plus free room and board."
"Oh and then there's the half-wit we have here at the ranch. He’s been here since we started the ranch; he’s a hard worker and a jack of all trades. He can do just about anything on the ranch and he works about 18 hours every day - including Saturdays and Sundays. He seldom takes a day off and I am pretty sure he does about 90% of all the work around here on the ranch. He makes just a little over $70 per week however he pays for his own room and board."
"But, I have to admit I buy a bottle of Jim Beam every Saturday night, and once in a while I let him sleep with my wife."
"That's the guy I want to talk to ... the half-wit. Where is he" asked the investigator?
"You're talking to him," replied the rabbit rancher.
