He should run for President. Not a partisan comment, but it does seem like a dirty job, whoever has it.

Mike Rowe is this generation’s Paul Harvey. With his catch phrase, “that’s the way I heard it.” Compared to Harvey’s “.and that’s, the rest of the story.” A truly amazing speaker.

He definitely knows what he's talking about, be a lowly mover\truck driver, I was able ,with my beautiful wife , to raise 3 kids, yes, my body's a little beat up, but, that comes with the job,but , I loved my job,I still do,, how many people can say that, I actually looked forward to going to work ! I'm 55, and I can still out work ALOT of younger guys, and, so many of the more intelligent people , couldn't figure out how to get ' item B into location 'C , and , I have worked with , and met, ALOT of great people. Met some celebrities,sports athletes, AND, THE BEST PART, I GOT PAID , TO WORK OUT!!

Society places value on people/work according to the simple laws of supply and demand. Hard terrible work should command high pay because few people are willing to do the work. When we import 3rd world people to fill needs instead of letting the scarcity of labor demand a higher wage, we keep the wages low and add insult to injurious work. The right thing to do is nothing. Let the laws of supply and demand kick in. When a septic line cleaner and a house framer gets Lawyer pay we wont need to recruit anyone for nasty jobs, they will be lining up.

@John Doe Like I said in my comment, the proper thing to do is nothing. Let the market regulate itself. Let the laws of supply and demand regulate wages.
John Doe 5 days ago
but the problem is that eventually if you saturate the market and tell everybody to be welder or plumber you run into the same problem. the issue is ultimately still the same. One person has control of the payroll and it's nobody else fault but that person for why wages are stagnant despite increases in productivity.

The whole point in this life is finding the right fit for you. I have done all the dirty jobs because for some reason I had the calling very early on.When I was in school I was looking outside and I wanted to out there. I knew if I barely could make it through the day at school that I couldn't last years in some cube in an office. i did pursue a degree in natural resources and have worked outside ever since doing all kinds of work. I worked at refineries , airports and in rural areas. I have never felt so alive when your out there getting paid to soak in the sun or rain. Mother nature has been a great boss.I have found most people that went to law school , medical school or accounting are drained at the end of the day.

@Gary Oakham Illegals are here because reagan granted amnesty to millions of them and, speaking as a lifelong construction worker, republican trash are ALWAYS the ones that hire them under the table.

With safety, best to make the work system safe as possible before you start work. Buccaneers tend to injure and die rather easily otherwise. Work hard but work smart. Like Honnold. Working smart means not exporting all your factory work to China.

This is not a dis on Rowe. I will say this.The biting off of lamb nuts is an old tried and true method that was used when the tools we have today weren't available. It works. So does a sharp knife. People do this stuff every day and it's not weird or gross. I showed this video to my in laws and it was like they were watching a stand up comedian. Get 'woke' folks!

No, we waged war on working for other people that are massively profiting at our expense, but we did what we always do with injustice: we overcompensated and said work is bullshit period. When you work for yourself, or with a community for mutual benefit, and you work as hard as you can, it is immensely satisfying.

Hairdresser here, I spent my first few years after highschool in college for Accounting. Absolutely despised it, I hated going to college. I decided to do something I thought would be interesting for myself, hairdressing. It was a big risk as I grew up in an Asian family who valued education over most things. Ten years later, one of the best decisions of my life, I'm making more money than if I stuck with accounting with no debts to pay. It's very reassuring to know that my skills and knowledge will always be wanted no matter where I go. Point is, don't let social pressure force you into college or university. It is not worth it; the only thing I regret is not having someone tell me this when I was younger.
