Stephen Colbert mocked Neil Cavuto on Wednesday for his protests against raising the minimum wage.

Cavuto — or as Colbert called him, Fox News' "burst tube of Pillsbury crescent rolls" — recently complained about fast food workers who want a higher minimum wage. He boasted that he had been "grateful" for any job he could find as a teenager, and rose to manager at Arthur Treacher's at age 16.

In a segment called "Rich White Guys Agreeing With Each Other," Colbert threw his support behind the Fox News host. "You hear that, strikers?" he said after replaying a clip of Cavuto. "Neil made two dollars an hour at age 16 and somehow still paid his rent and fed his kids."
