Real Work & Mike Rowe


I finally sat down and watched Mike Rowe‘s video from Ted [based on the recommendations of several PRHR readers] and I was blown away.

If you haven’t seen it, you should really watch it.


Mike Rowe talks about the myth of ‘doing what you love’ and examines the way America has devalued work to the point where we have huge infrastructure needs and a shortage of skilled workers.

So I wonder — How do you define real work? Do you think we devalue real work? Do we learn this from the media? From our family? As many of us in America move further and further away from our immigrant roots, do we start to equate work with a lower class of citizens?
