Mike Rowe Brings It: ‘Americans Don’t Value Work Anymore’ – VIDEO

Mike Rowe of Dirty Jobs believes that many Americans are unhappy with their lives because they no longer value the intrinsic value of work.

Fox aired a pre-recorded interview with Tucker Carlson on Friday. During the interview, Rowe claims that the American media is attempting to convince people that less work will result in more happiness.

“Look, the best-selling books right now in the self-help section and in general claim to have the solution for how you can work less,” Rowe explained. “Most of the commercials on TV ask a tacit question, you know, how could you be happier? And the answer, of course, is retire a little sooner or work 35 instead of 40 hours.”

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

“What you said is the business of working has an underlying inherent value to it,” Rowe told The Daily Caller co-founder. “I do believe deeply that’s 100 percent true.”

“If there is one enduring lesson from Dirty Jobs, it’s the fact that 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,” he asserted. “It’s just an inconvenient truth, if you will pardon the bromide, but it’s out there and there is a lot of hope in it.”
