Unless you’re stuck on an island and your only pal is a blood-stained volleyball, you probably know a person or two. Odds are most of those people are unhappy with the way their lives are going. The ever-wise Mike Rowe has the perfect theory as to why people feel that way:
Dirty Jobs’ Mike Rowe believes that many Americans are dissatisfied with their lives because they no longer appreciate the intrinsic value of work.
“If there is one enduring lesson from Dirty Jobs, it’s the fact that those people as a group are having a better time and were more connected to their work than the vast majority of people I know who make great white collar livings,” he asserted. “It’s just an inconvenient truth, if you will pardon the bromide, but it’s out there and there is a lot of hope in it.”
