Critic Slams Trade Work, Mike Rowe Shuts Him Up by Asking Two Questions

Mike Rowe nails it here.

Published

on

Former “Dirty Jobs” host Mike Rowe has become a hero of sorts for conservatives across America, mostly due to the fact that he champions blue collar jobs and careers, many of which are vacant these days due to the pressure put on kids to pursue a four year degree.

This, as you probably know, has flooded the marketplace with masses of young people who all have degrees and are now competing for the same small number of jobs, which translates to untold numbers of college graduates being thousands of dollars in debt with no career opportunities to help recoup the cost.

Unfortunately, another part of this issue is the fact that the entitlement mentality possessed by many in the younger generation has made it popular to avoid hard work and to try finding jobs that are basically like a picnic in the park.

Rowe, who outspokenly defends trade work on a regular basis, recently had an opportunity to champion the cause yet again when a critic came to him and smashed on him for encouraging people to pursue this sort of labor.

“I always see these articles saying there is a shortage of construction trade workers, but everywhere I go I see hundreds of them unemployed. There is definitely no shortage of these workers, thereโ€™s just a shortage of people willing to work for sub-par poverty wages. Thatโ€™s why these Mike Rowe types want to flood the labor market. Donโ€™t believe any of that s*** if you read it,” wrote a man named Chad via Facebook.

“Obviously, Iโ€™m aware that some people refuse to work because they believe the pay is too low,” Rowe responded. “People like that exist in every industry, and the construction trades are no different.” However, the success host argued that this isn’t the sole reason that “6.3 million jobs are currently vacant. The fact is, starting salaries in the skilled trades rival or exceed those of many more popular careers.”

“I often post about opportunities in the skilled trades, but unlike your claims, mine are easy to verify. According to the BLS, 6.3 million jobs are currently available โ€“ the vast majority of which do NOT require a four-year degree. Many of those jobs exist in construction. Iโ€™m not making this up, Chad. Itโ€™s right there in black and white. So too, is the amount of college debt currently on the books โ€“ 1.5 trillion dollars. A rather tidy sum, considering half of those who borrow money for tuition donโ€™t even graduate,” wrote Rowe.

Rowe then shut Chad down by asking the following two questions:

“Obviously, my desire to share stories of success doesnโ€™t make me right, any more than your desire to share stories of failure makes you wrong. But it does give me permission to ask โ€“ respectfully and in all seriousness โ€“ what is it you hope to accomplish by telling people that opportunity is dead? In other words, what is YOUR agenda?”

You can see Rowe’s full reply in the Facebook post down below:

What parents of the next generations need to make sure they instill in their children is a sense that no work is beneath them, that all work that’s legal and pleases God is good work and worthy of their time and effort.

This will go along way toward raising kids who will fill those trade jobs and provide the services and products needed to make our world a better place.
