Sven and Olof worked together in a Minnesota factory and both were laid off.
So...dey went to the Unemployment Office togedder.

Asked his occupation, Olof said, "Panty Stitcher. I sew da elastic onto da ladies cotton panties."

The clerk looked up Panty Stitcher. Finding it classified as Unskilled Labor, she gave Olof $300 a week in unemployment compensation.

Sven, when asked his occupation replied, "Diesel Fitter".
The clerk looked up Diesel Fitter and it was classified as a skilled job.
So, the clerk gave Sven $600 a week in unemployment compensation.

When Olof found this out, he was furious! He stormed back into the office to find out why his friend and co-worker was collecting double his benefits. The clerk explained, "Panty Stitchers are unskilled labor and Diesel Fitters are skilled labor."

"Vat skill? yelled Olof. "I sew da elastic on da panties. Olof puts dem over his head and says, "Yah, ------------- DIESEL FITTER".
