Discovery Channel's Mike Rowe, host of "Dirty Jobs", gives his testimony to the U.S. Senate Committee

“As the host of a TV show about hard work, people often assume I speak for tradesmen and skilled workers. In reality, I don't. I can only speak for myself and anyone else who shares my addiction to paved roads, reliable bridges, heating, air conditioning, and indoor plumbing. The tradesmen I know don't need a spokesman. It's the rest of us who need to worry. Because a civilization without skilled labor is not a civilization at all." – Mike Rowe, Creator, Executive Producer and Host, Dirty Jobs, Discovery Channel
