Samantha Bee heads to Wall Street to build a bridge between workers and protesters in America's rage-based economy. (3:58)

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

>> Jon: WELCOME BACK.

YOU KNOW, I DON'T HAVE THE

FACTS TO BACK THIS UP--

(LAUGHTER)

BUT I HEARD THAT WHEN WE GO

TO SLEEP THE WASHINGTON

MONUMENT GOES AND BATHES IN

THE REFLECTING POOL.

(LAUGHTER)

AS YOU MAY HAVE HEARD WALL

STREET IS CURRENTLY

OCCUPIED.

BUT WHAT'S REALLY GOING ON

DOWN THERE.

FIND OUT WE SENT SAM B TO

THE OCCUPATION, TO OCCUPY

THE OCCUPIERS.

>> AS YOU MAY HAVE HEARD IN

DOWNTOWN MANHATTAN, THE

ANGER OF THE PEOPLE IS

RAISING TO THE SURFACE.

>> I'M FED UP.

I'M ANGRY.

>> I'M UP SET.

>> I'M ANGRY, ENOUGH, GUYS,

GO HOME.

>> I WANT THE PROTESTORS TO

GO HOME.

>> I'M SORRY WHAT.

>> THE PROTESTORS.

>> YES, IN AMERICA'S NEW

RAGE-BASED ECONOMY, THE

WORKERS ARE SPEAKING OUT IN

ANGER, AGAINST PEOPLE

SPEAKING OUT IN ANGER

AGAINST THE MAN.

>> THEY'VE BEEN HARASSING US,

THEY'VE BEEN ABUSING US.

>> YOU WALK INTO THE STORE

AND THERE IS [BLEEP] ALL

OVER THE PLACE AND SOMEBODY

THOUGHT IT WAS FINE TO LEAVE

IT LIKE THAT.

>> Reporter: OKAY, SO

SOMEONE CAME INTO YOUR

BATHROOM STALL, AND [BLEEP]

ALL OVER THE PLACE, AND

LEFT.

>> I HAD THIS ONE GUY COME

IN, IN THE MIDDLE OF THE

STORE, YELLING BOYCOTT

PENINI.

>> THEY BROKE IT.

>> ONE OF THE SINKS IS

PULLED OFF THE WALL BECAUSE

THEY WERE TRYING TO SHOWER

IN THE SINK.

>> THEY ACTUALLY CAME IN

HERE THE OTHER DAY AND

WANTED ME TO TAKE CARE OF

THEIR WASTE.

>> THE PROTESTORS CAME TO

YOUR STORE AND ASKED YOU TO

DISPOSE OF THEIR BAGS OF

HUMAN --

>> EXACTLY.

>> EXKREMENT.

>> EXACTLY.

>> OH MY GOD.

WAS'S THE MINIMUM PURCHASE

THAT WOULD JUSTIFY SOMEONE

CROP DUSTING YOUR WASHROOM

AND WASHING THEIR CROC IN

YOUR SINK.

>> NORMALLY A BOTTLE OFED SO

ALL WOULD HAVE BEEN FINE.

>> I REALIZED I KNEED TO

GIVE VOICE TO THE POWERLESS

TO CONFRONT THE OTHER

POWERLESS.

>> IF YOU SEE SOMETHING THAT

YOU DON'T THINK IS RIGHT YOU

HAVE THE ABILITY TO CHANGE

IT.

AND YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO

CHANGE IT.

AND AS AN AMERICAN, I THINK

YOU HAVE THE DUTY TO TRY TO

CHANGE IT.

>> SPEAKING OF DOESN'TY,

WHERE IS EVERYONE AROUND

HERE POOPING?

>> MOSTLY AT THE McDONALD'S.

THE BURGER KIN WOULDN'T LET

US IN.

>> WHEN IS THE LAST TIME

YOU --

>> WENT TO THE BATHROOM.

>> YEAH.

>> I JUST WENT --

>> ARE YOU BEING RESPECTFUL

OF THE LOCAL BUSINESSES.

>> I'M NOT PATRONIZING THEM

BUT --

>> YOU'RE NOT PATRONIZING

THEM.

>> THAT'S MY RIGHT AS A

CONSUMER.

THAT'S HOW-- THE FREE MARKET

WORKS.

>> NO, IT ISN'T.

YOU ARE SUPPOSED GO IN THERE

AND BUY SOMETHING, YOU CAN'T

SPONGE BATHE YOUR GENITALS

IN THE REST ROOM.

EVERYBODY WANTS TO SUPPORT

WHAT YOU ARE DOING BUT WHEN

YOU GO INTO THE STORES AND

USE THEIR WASHROOMS AND THEN

THE SINK BREAKS AND WATER

GOES EVERYWHERE, AND THE

PLACE FLOODS, AND THERE'S

ASS JUICE ON EVERYTHING,

IT'S NOT GOOD FOR ANYBODY.

>> I DON'T DISAGREE.

>> THERE HAD TO BE A WAY TO

BRING THESE TWO SIDES

TOGETHER SO AMERICA COULD

MOVE FORWARD.

I HAD A COUPLE OF IDEAS.

>> STACEY, THIS IS BOBBIE,

BOBBIE THIS IS STACEY.

>> HOW ARE YOU DOING.

>> OKAY.

>> BOBBY CAME IN HERE ONCE

BEFORE AND GOT TURNED AWAY

BECAUSE HE WASN'T GOING TO

BUY ANYTHING.

WE ARE GOING TO BUILD A

BRIDGE HERE TODAY.

>> THAT WOULD BE GREAT.

>> BOBBY HAS TO GO TO THE

BATHROOM AND HE IS GOING TO

BUY SOMETHING IN YOUR

ESTABLISHMENT.

SO THAT HE CAN JUSTIFY USING

YOUR WASHROOM, LIKE A

REGULAR CUSTOMER.

SO --

>> I ACTUALLY DON'T HAVE ANY

MONEY.

>> OH FOR [BLEEP] SAKES,

FINE.

IF I COULD HEAL THE NATION

FOR THE COST OF A MUFFIN, IT

WOULD BE WORTH IT.

>> ALL RIGHT.

I'M JUST GOING TO MAKE SURE

NOTHING WEIRD HAPPENS.

>> OKAY, HERE WE GO.

VERY GOOD.

AND YOU BETTER KEEP IT CLEAN,

NO DRIPS.

>> IF YOU WANT JUSTICE FOR

ALL WORKERS, YOU ALSO HAVE

TO BELIEVE IN JUSTICE FOR

THE WORKERS IN YOUR

NEIGHBORHOOD.

>> LEFT IT CLEANER THAN WE
