Mike Rowe: Americans Don't Value Work Anymore

Mike Rowe: Americans Don't Value Work Anymore

<p>Dirty Jobs’ Mike Rowe believes that <strong>many Americans are dissatisfied with their lives because they no longer appreciate the intrinsic value of work.</strong></p>

<p><iframe allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="" width="560"></iframe></p>

<p>As The Daily Caller's Amber Athey reports, in a pre-recorded interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson that aired Friday, <strong>Rowe accused the American media of convincing people that they will be happier if they choose to work less.</strong></p>

<p>“Look, the best-selling books right now in the <strong>self-help section and in general claim to have the solution for how you can work less</strong>,” Rowe explained.</p>

<p>“Most of the commercials on TV ask a tacit question, you know, <strong>how could you be happier? And the answer, of course, is retire a little sooner or work 35 instead of 40 hours.</strong>”</p>

<p>However, Rowe argued, <strong>the act of doing work brings value and purpose to people’s lives, making them happier overall.</strong></p>

<p><u><strong>“What you said is the business of working has an underlying inherent value to it,” </strong></u>Rowe told The Daily Caller co-founder.</p>

<p>“I do believe deeply that’s 100 percent true.”</p>

<p>“If there is one enduring lesson from Dirty Jobs, it’s the fact that<strong> those people as a group are having a better time and were more connected to their work than the vast majority of people I know who make great white collar livings,</strong>” he asserted.</p>

<p>“It’s just an <strong>inconvenient truth,</strong> if you will pardon the bromide, but it’s out there and there is a lot of hope in it.”</p>

<p>And this anti-work rhetoric begins at an early age, <a href="">as Rowe previously concluded</a>, <strong>millions of reasonable people – Republicans and Democrats alike – are worried that our universities are doing a poor job of preparing students for the real world</strong>. They’re worried about activist professors, safe spaces, the rising cost of tuition, a growing contempt for history, and a simmering disregard of the first amendment.</p>

<p><strong>These people are concerned that our universities – once beacons of free speech – now pander to a relatively small percentage of students who can’t tolerate any political opinion that challenges their own.</strong></p>

<p>And they’re concerned – deeply concerned - that millions of good jobs are currently vacant that <strong>don’t require a four-year degree, or any of the catastrophic debt that comes with it. </strong></p><img src="" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>
