  • 'Dirty Jobs' Host Explains American Work Ethic in 90 Seconds

    Is American work ethic being eroded? On a “Fox and Friends” segment Wednesday, former “Dirty Jobs” host Mike Rowe weighed in.

    Rowe said jobs have been available since 2003, but Americans aren’t defining them as “good.” Meanwhile, employers are desperate for people willing to learn a “useful skill” and work hard.

    “The definition of a good job, the meaning of work,” Rowe said, “[is] the willingness to see what a lot of people might call a bad job and only see an opportunity.”

    Check out the 90-second clip below and let us know how you define work ethic in the comments.
