What does Slim's remark, :Ain't many guys travel around together," suggest about the world they know? Does Slim's remark have a different implication than the boss's remark even thought the words are the same?

Slim understands the loneliness and isolation that these itinerant workers live. Slim, a Christ-figure sees the emotional value in companionship. The Boss sees companionship as one man taking advantage of the other. The Boss represents the larger cynical world these men live in.
