If you ever worked at a fast-food restaurant, you may get an even bigger laugh than  normal out of The Daily Show's take on the back and forth over proposals to raise the minimum wage for workers in that industry.

John Oliver's bit goes so long that it is broken into three parts on the web site, and this is the middle part that takes on the talking head TV gasbags talking about how minimum wage worker doesn't need raises because if he or she has any gumption, he or she will get better wages at better jobs, just like they did.
