Minimum wage

Jack McCoy, an elderly Liverpool farmer, received a letter from the
Department for Work & Pensions stating that they suspected he was
not paying his employees the statutory minimum wage and they
would send an inspector to interview them. On the appointed day,
the inspector turned up. "Tell me about your staff," he asked Jack.
"Well," said Jack, "there's the farm hand. I pay him £240 a week,
and he has a free cottage. Then there's the housekeeper.
She gets £190 a week, along with free board and lodging.
There's also the half-wit. He works a 16 hour day, does 90% of the work,
earns about £25 a week along with a bottle of whisky and a bowl of scouse,
and, very occasionally, as a special treat, gets to sleep with my wife."
"That's disgraceful" said the inspector. "I need to interview the half-wit."
"You are talking to him," said Jack.
