Americans are quitting jobs at an alarming rate.
Many of these jobs are good-paying jobs, but perhaps they are not the “dream” jobs people were hoping to have.
It is baffing to Mike Rowe, and it is something he believes will have a deep impact on everyone in the country.
It would be great to land your “dream job,” but few people ever truly get to say that.
Mike Rowe has always had a different way of looking at this, and it is one that I used to mold my own business model.
Rather than seek out your “dream job,” find a niche that has a need and address it.
Become passionate about that need and make that job your dream job.
Today, blue-collar jobs are getting looked own upon, as everyone wants a six-figure job right out of the gate.
Kids want to work six months at a job, then get promoted to the boss.
It’s unrealistic, but it also has big impact on the entire country in terms of benefits programs and how our economy rolls along.
Rowe stated, “This is a conversation about our workforce and the imbalanced nature of it and the way that’s going to impact every single American who shares my addiction to smooth roads, indoor plumbing, affordable electricity and so forth.”
We can look at two industries right now that are struggling… transportation and health care.
There are plenty of jobs in both sectors were you do not need an advanced degree, yet these two sectors are crippled right now, and not just because of Biden’s idiotic vaccine mandate.
In October, we hit 11 million job openings in this country, which almost broke the record high.
Rowe stated, “That, interestingly, is one of the few things that we can control.
“We need to explain to kids that working with your hands, learning a skill that’s in demand can still lead to prosperity.”
Everyone seems to believe that you need to have a master’s degree to be successful, but that is hardly the case.
Rowe stated, “It can’t be higher education, and everything else is some vocational consolation prize.
“We need to set the table fairly.
“We need to do a better job globally of shining a light on [skilled labor] stories.”

Do you think Mike Rowe is right? Do we need to do more to promote blue-collar jobs in this country?
