Mike Rowe: The Value Of Work | Meet The Press
In this video, Mike Rowe, former host of Discovery Channel's "Dirty Jobs," joined Chuck Todd at NBC’s Meet The Press round table to discuss the value of work. He says that it is no coincidence that Donald Trump got elected at the same that Dirty Jobs, which focuses on people that do blue-collar work, is successful.
Most recently, you can find Mike on Facebook’s groundbreaking series, Returning the Favor, where he searches for remarkable people making a difference in their communities and helps give back to those who pay it forward with humor, heart, and surprise. In addition, Mike launched The Way I Heard It, a weekly five-minute podcast of short mysteries for the curious mind with a short attention span. In the podcast, Mike gives a different take on people and events that you thought you knew, from pop culture to politics, Hollywood to history.
