Daily Caller: Dirty Jobs’ Mike Rowe believes that many Americans are dissatisfied with their lives because they no longer appreciate the intrinsic value of work.
In a pre-recorded interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson that aired Friday, Rowe accused the American media of convincing people that they will be happier if they choose to work less.
“Look, the best-selling books right now in the self-help section and in general claim to have the solution for how you can work less,” Rowe explained. “Most of the commercials on TV ask a tacit question, you know, how could you be happier? And the answer, of course, is retire a little sooner or work 35 instead of 40 hours.”
However, Rowe argued, the act of doing work brings value and purpose to people’s lives, making them happier overall.
