Manuel and Pedro worked together and both were
laid off, so they went to the unemployment office.

When asked his occupation, Manuel answered,
"Pinty Stitcher. I sew da elastic onto ladies' cotton pinties." The clerk looked up Pinty 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 Manuel 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, "Pinty stitchers are
unskilled and diesel fitters are skilled labor."

"What skill?" yelled Manuel. "I sew the elastic
on da pinties, Pedro puts dem over his head and says, "Yeah, diesel fitter."
