A man owned a small farm in the Annapolis Valley. The Labour Board claimed he was not paying proper wages to his help and sent an agent to interview him. " You just give me a list of your employees and tell me how much you pay them.' " All right,' said the farmer. "I' have a hired man. Been with me for three year's. I pay him $600 a week, plus room and board. I have a cook. She's been here six month's. She get's $500 a week, plus room and board. " Anybody else? asked the agent as he scribbled on a note pad. "Yeah, " the farmer said. "This guy is none too bright. Work's about eighteen hour's a day. I pay him ten dollars a week and give him chewing tobacco." "Aha!" the agent roared. "I want to talk to that man!" "Speaking," said the farmer.
