'Dirty Jobs' Star Mike Rowe Trying to Clean Up American Workforce
"Dirty Jobs" host Mike Rowe wants to clean up the American workforce.
The Discovery Channel star, who spends his time exploring how unsung laborers make a living in some of the most difficult and strangest ways, has launched the 2017 Work Ethic Scholarship Program to encourage Americans to get back to work.
"Every year, we do a work ethic scholarship," explained the 55-year-old on "Fox & Friends" Tuesday. "It's not huge, but we set aside five or six hundred grand and we put it in a pile and we invite people who want to learn a skill that’s actually in demand to make a case for themselves [such as] an essay, video, references."
