$25 In Rewards Offered by Gary Motor Truck Agency Disproving
Contractor's Figures but Approving His tyisiness Judgment
There was a contractor who employed six Irishmen by the year as
teamsters, but they kicked, “too much work; teams too slow; too many
hours,’’ etc., so the contractor figured it out to them thus:
There are 365 days in a year; eight hours for work, eight hours for
sleep and eight hours for leisure each day. Eight hours per day amounts
to 122 days in a year, which, taken from 365 days, leaves 243 days. Eight
hours leisure per day amounts to 122 days, which, taken from 243, leaves
121 days. From which take the 52 Sundays, leaves 69 days.
Now, there are 52 Saturday afternoons off. which makes 26 days,
which, taken front 69, leaves 43 days, from which deduct 15 legal holidays,
which leaves 28 working days; but every man gets two weeks’ vacation
on full pay, which, taken from 28, leaves 14 days; and as every man has
an hour each day for dinnex, which amounts to 13 days in a year, there
is only one day left. This day happened to be St. Patrick’s day and the
Irishmen refused to work on St. Patrick’s day, so the*contractor arranged
for a couple of GARY TRUCKS to take the place of the six teams and
drivers and so settled his labor troubles and solved his hauling problems
without a strike or lockout and to the entire satisfaction of all concerned.
