Two guys waiting in the unemployment line worked side by side in the factory for 17 years before it closed down.
First guy up to the window doesn’t speak good English.
The Clerk asks, “What was your occupation?”
Clerk: (looks in book) “ok that’s $795 a week, here you go.”
2nd man walks up.
Clerk: “what’s your occupation?”
2nd man: “Seamstress.”
Clerk: (looks in book) “ok that’s $407 a week, here you go.”
2nd man: “ Woah, wait a minute, he got almost $800! For the same job.”
Clerk: “ Sir, he was a dieselfitter, a higher skilled occupation.”
2nd man: “He wasn’t no dieselfitter, he worked next to me in the skirt factory. I’d stitch in the elastic, he’d hold them up to fold them , check them and said “Dees-ul-fit her!” Before he folded them.”
