'The Daily Show' Takes On Wisconsin Anti-Union Bill, Teacher Criticism With 'Cribs' Spoof

Posted: Updated:

In the March 10 episode of "The Daily Show," Jon Stewart took a look at the passage of the anti-union bill in Wisconsin and the criticisms being leveled at teachers and their unions nationwide.

Stewart played clips of pundits and politicians knocking teachers for being over-compensated with high salaries and short workdays, which they attribute to unions pressing for luxurious working conditions under collective bargaining rights.

"Daily Show" correspondent Sam Bee explored two teachers' homes in a spoof of the popular MTV show "Cribs", which gives viewers an inside look at the lavish mansions of celebrities.
