Sven and Olaf worked together in a Minnesota factory and were laid off. Soooo...
So....dey went to the unemployment office togedder.
Asked his occupation, Olaf said, "Panty Stitcher, I sew da elastic onto da ladies cotton panties."
The clerk looked up Panty Stitcher and found it classified as unskilled labor and Olaf was granted $300 a week in compensation.
Sven, when asked his occupation replied, "Diesel fitter".
The clerk looked up Diesel fitter and found it was classified as a skilled job and Sven was granted $600 a week in compensation.
When Olaf found this out he was furious! He stormed back into the unemployment office to find out why his friend and co-worker was collecting twice what he was granted. The clerk explained, " Panty stitchers are unskilled labor and Diesel fitters are skilled labor."
"Vat skill" ??? yelled Olaf. " I sew da elastic on da panties. Olaf puts dem over his head and says, "Yah,.......Diesel fitter."
