It's A Dirty Job But Somebody's Gotta Do It...

On Labor Day 2008, Rowe launched a website,, which is focused on the decline in the blue collar trades and the crumbling state of the infrastructure. A trade resource center has been launched and provides information, resources, and forums for people interested in learning about, or pursuing a career in, the trades,  as well as a new blog aggregator for the trades and construction industry called the "Trades Hub", which launched in April 2011.
On September 19, 2010, Mike Rowe and the Association of Equipment Manufacturers started a grassroots campaign called “I Make America”. The campaign aims to create jobs in the manufacturing sector by encouraging infrastructure investment and export agreements. The group argues that this will improve the economy and global competitiveness of the United States.
Mike Rowe has contributed video content to The Alabama Construction Recruitment Institute's trade-worker recruiting campaign, culminating in an Iron Bowl-themed commercial broadcast on local CBS affiliates during Thanksgiving weekend 2010.
In May 2011, Rowe testified on the issue before the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation.

Pay them their wages each day before sunset,
because they are poor and are counting on it.
Otherwise they may cry to the LORD against you,
and you will be guilty of sin.
~ Deuteronomy 24
Mike Rowe talks more about the subject of America and hard work.
