Testimony of Mike Rowe

Most of us are lucky enough to not need to work a physical job, but that doesn’t mean the work of a physical craftsperson isn’t absolutely vital or society. I think Mike’s right. We’ve discounted this type of work too much. Why don’t we still teach Shop in high school? Why do we perpetuate the myth that vocational school and apprenticeships are somehow less worthy? The world might be more global, but the downsides of that globalization are placing a premium on local craftsmanship and local products.
