Panchito and Pedro worked together and both were laid off, so they went to the unemployment office. When asked his occupation, Panchito answered, "Panty Stitcher. I sew da elastic on da ladies' cotton panties."
The clerk looked up Panty Stitcher. Finding it classified as "unskilled labor", she gave him $300 a week unemployment pay.
Pedro was asked his occupation. "Diesel Fitter," he replied. Since diesel fitter was a skilled job,the clerk gave Pedro $600 a week...
When Panchito found out, he was furious. He stormed back into the office to find out why his friend and co-worker was collecting double his pay.
The clerk explained, "Panty stitchers are unskilled labor but diesel fitters are skilled." "What skill?" yelled Panchito. "I sew the elastic on da panties, then Pedro puts dem over his head and says,"yeah, diesel fitter."
