Two guys who worked together were both laid off, so off they went to the
unemployment office.

Asked his occupation, the first guy said "Panty stitcher. I sew the
elastic onto cotton panties." The clerk looked up panty stitcher. Finding
it classed as unskilled labor, she gave him $300, a week's unemployment
pay.

The second guy was asked his occupation. "Diesel fitter" he replied.
Since diesel fitters was a skilled job the clerk gave the second guy $600.
a week.

When the first guy found out he was furious. He stormed back in to find
out why his friend and co-worker was collecting double his pay. The clerk
explained: panty stitchers were unskilled and diesel fitters were skilled
labor. "What skill?" yelled the panty stitcher.

"I sew the elastic on. He puts it on and says, "Yep, diesel fitter".
