Rupert and Wilberforce worked together, and both made redundant, so off they went to the Job Centre Plus office.

Asked his occupation, Wilberforce said "Panty stitcher, I sew the elastic onto cotton panties."

The attendant looked up panty stitcher. Finding it classed as unskilled labour, she gave him £90 a week unemployment pay.

Rupert was asked his occupation. "Diesel fitter" he replied. Since diesel fitters was a skilled job the clerk gave Rupert $120 a week.

When Wilberforce found out he was furious. He stormed back into the Job-Centre to find out why his friend and co-worker was collecting more pay than himself.

The assistant explained:
"Panty stitchers were unskilled and diesel fitters were skilled labour!"

"What skill?" demanded Wilberforce!
"I sew the elastic on, and Rupert pulls on it and says, "Yep, diesel fitter!"
