Why Dirty Jobs Matter
TV Host; Writer; Narrator; Producer; Actor and Spokesman
The fact is people who do dirty jobs are some of the happiest people you’ll ever meet — and they often
are able to achieve a work-life symmetry others can’t. TV host and producer Mike Rowe, best known for his
role on Discovery Channel’s Dirty Jobs, will give an illuminating account of the true nature of skilled labor,
and why it’s being devalued by the media, advertising and even the government. With conviction, humor
and deep humanity, he brings us face-to-face with Americans who are simply doing their jobs — happily
and well. In the process, he will offer important lessons that can be learned from them about teamwork,
determination, efficiency and our definition of success — and remind us of the enormous but forgotten
benefits of hard, honest work, and how it affects everything from our national identity to our infrastructure
