Mike Rowe Issues Crucial Warning to Americans about “Making Work the Enemy”

Mike Rowe, host of CNN’s “Somebody’s Gotta Do it” and the Discovery Channel’s “Dirty Jobs,” has some sage advice for all Americans on the virtues of hard work.

This is a sound message that everyone, especially those on the Left, should hear and take seriously.
Rowe suggested that those who are living longer than their predecessors and believe they can retire at age 65 need a reality check, and told the Blaze, “The math is scary.”

He foresees widespread economic disaster if middle-aged and younger Americans don’t embrace the concept of work and accept that they will have to work for much longer than their parents.
“They are going to be retired for 40 years? There’s just no universe possible where you have enough money to live on if you’re an average Joe, 40 years after punching out,” he said.
“Part of the reason, I think, we’re facing such a mess is because people are truly still clinging to the idea that, ‘OK, I worked for 30 years and now I’m done.’ That’s crazy.” …
He believes pop culture is partly to blame for the widespread perception that getting away with doing as little work as possible is somehow a noble endeavor.
“If the key to happiness is working less, we’re in trouble,” Rowe told the Blaze.
“It’s that simple. Work can’t be the enemy, unless it is, and if you make it the enemy – look out.”

Rowe is well-known for extolling the virtues of hard work and providing clear, common sense rebuttals to his critics on the American Left.
