The War on Work, talk by Mike Rowe

I know this video is 20 minutes long, but I highly recommend you watch it. If you don’t have that long, jump forward to 15:20 and watch the last 4 minutes. Mike says in his talk that our country, our society, has declared a multi-fronted war on work. The plumber who is always portrayed in every movie as a 300 pound butt-crack. The relentless commercials telling you how much happier you would be if you could just work a little less and get away a little more often. Point after point, Mike Rowe makes it clear that our country desperately needs to rethink it’s stereotypes of the dirtier jobs.
