“It’s a dirty job, but somebody’s got to do it.” Next time you utter this phrase to describe your own work, spare a thought for the garbage collectors, the sewer inspectors and the road kill collectors – people with unsavory but necessary occupations. TV host Mike Rowe gives these individuals a voice. His rich perspective is captivating. Yet be warned: Rowe relays his encounter with sheep castration in graphic detail. Nonetheless, getAbstract recommends this lecture to anyone who enjoys a vivid story or wants a fresh perspective on the nature of work.
In this summary, you will learn
- How America waged war on work,
- What common beliefs about work are wrong, and
- Why society needs to view work differently.
