    An honest days work is not rewarded with an honest wage. Instead its ridiculed and dissected to cut cost and increase wages for White Collars and share holders.
    This has been an ongoing trend for decades and Corporate America needs to comes to terms with it.
    Expecting someone to work 10-14 hrs per day, only to make peanuts learning a trade, isn’t appetizing to anyone.
    We have a system in the country that protects and supports those who choose NOT to work, more than the ones who do!

      Wow. This man is a turd on two legs and Mike Rowes nonsense
      complements it perfectly.

        Honestly, the SOTU was great. idk who wrote it, but Trump chose a great writer. The people who didn't stand or at least smile a little are sorry sacks of 'this or that' shit.

          Trump has never wanted unity. That is probably why he isn't getting it.

            I like how Mr. Rowe speaks what is real, while the other three talk out their asses

                America is VERY polarized, with very little middle ground. It will prove America's downfall.

                        I like how Mike Rowe doesn't just spit out the predictable responses. When he doesn't know, he says so. He just tells the truth as he sees it. No talking points. Really enjoy hearing his perspective.

                          I personally dont care who stands or sits. I think it's pointless. Do you think they'd be genuine if they did? Also some of the stats these hosts said are misleading. We have more people at work than ever before because the population is growing the way it is. Wages are rising because they have to not because business wants to pay employees more. I'm a moderate and I think talking about who stands or sits during a speach is irrelevant when it distracts us from the real issues

                              I quit high school in the tenth grade back in 82 and went to work in a machine shop deburring parts,chipping out machines,cleaning the bathrooms,delivering parts and all manner of grunt work.
                              Within three years I was working in inspection,two years later I was running a lathe. All because I applied myself.
                              I'm 53 now and retired when I was 46. Because I applied myself.
                              Kids now days are fuken lazy slugs!!!! I cant tell you how many kids I've seen walk into a machine shop demanding top dollar when they only have a few years experience.
                              The thing I heard from these lazy bastards the most? If you're only going to pay me 15 bucks an hour you're going to get 15 dollar an hour work out of me. Fuken pathetic!!

                                                    Quality is important when a modern couple cannot raise a family with many of the open jobs Rowe is referring to.

                                                      There is a lot of variables that can go into why someone didn’t apply or accept a job. Family needs might not match company demands, hours commuting don’t add up per the wage, some people go back to school, injuries, and yes some just lazy and don’t want to get hands dirty.

                                                        My son makes $, without working a "job". This makes him fall off the radar. But he's able to buy and sell, and just bring in more $ a day, then he could make post taxes. If you think he's living in my basement, your grossly wrong, he bought a home, does not have a mortgage, and is considering buying a second. He does work hard, and also drives a tow truck. Try that in a NY winter, if you think work is easy.

                                                          First Data gave numbers about sales recently. Apparently, Sears, and other stores are taking a beating, from likely kids whom have started their own amazon store, or ebay store, and do not feel the need to work for others. 2018 was a fundamental change in consumer behavior. There was no height in Christmas sales, they were able to shop 24/7. Stores that rent real estate and pay huge property taxes are in trouble.

The right were disrespectful to Obama and now do the same to Trump. The cycle continues. I love what Mike preaches about trade jobs. Society has come to a point where they look down at people who earn a living that way and push everybody to some desk job. As if trade or labor work isnt honest work. In my experience trade school was never even brought up as an option after high school and getting info on it can be a pain.

It's not about you for once. It's about the President speaking to the country. Extremely lame. I'm talking to you, Peloser.
                                                                                    You are absolutely right! I remember the eight years that Obama spoke in that chamber all the Republican representatives were very polite and very respectful. That's what I remember! God, I love these meds they have me on now. I can make all my memories turn out to be happy ones. Sometimes reality breaks through, but, I just take another pill and I can remember what I want to remember. I can make everything make me happy again. Like one time I remembered a Republican called Obama a liar, but I just changed it to a Democrat peeing in his pants and I got happy again. Yaaaaaay!!!

Those guys figure percentage of population is too old or too young to work but then rest of working age according to these guys are slackers and simply not doing any work.

But, he kept dodging his way around it all the while trying to talk about his program to help people get back to work at good paying jobs. Watching this I see he has gotten the Dodge and Talk maneuver down pretty darn good.

Makes me think maybe there is more than that one “pay for phony positive social media” operations which was shutdown in South Florida!
