TDS: Wage Against the Machine

Below is my Daily Show debut.

The segment was pretty good. As noted last night [1], we shot for 2 hours, and lots of great stuff was left on the cutting room floor. The discussion on higher paying retailers such as Costco and Trader Joes versus Walmart was actually interesting, and Samantha was really funny in that section. I guess if I wanted more screen time, I should have spoken about retarded people deserving to earn less than minimum wage (watch the video to understand).

Samantha Bee explores the devastating economic effects of raising the minimum wage to the poverty level.
