F/H: Job Description

Paddy and Mick were both laid off from their jobs in a clothing factory, so they went to the unemployment office.

When asked his occupation, Paddy answered, “Panty Stitcher – I sew da elastic onto ladies cotton panties and tongs.”

The clerk looked up panty stitcher on his computer and, finding it classified as unskilled labour, he gave him $80 a week unemployment pay.

Mick was next in and when asked his occupation replied, “Diesel fitter.”

Since a diesel fitter was a skilled job, the clerk gave Mick $160 a week. When Paddy found out he was furious. He stormed back into the office to find out why his friend and co-worker were collecting double his pay.

The Clerk explained, “Panty Stitchers are unskilled labour and Diesel fitters are skilled labour.”

“What skill?” yelled Paddy? “I sew da elastic on da panties and tongs, and then Mick puts ‘em over his head and says: “Yep, diesel fitter.”
