We Need Dirty Workers

“The skills gap is a reflection of what we value. To close the gap, we need to change the way the country feels about work.”

(Via, Mike Rowe’s Testimony Before the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation)

Mike rules! I’ve said for a while we need to encourage skilled trade works. Not everyone should go to university. We’ll always need plumbers. And more and more I’m feeling the need to get my hands dirty.
