Socialist Bernie Sanders was just owned by Mike Rowe when he went after him for introducing this bill

Mar 22, 2024

Mike Rowe has built a huge fan base by celebrating the hardworking men and women who keep America running.

Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders has built his fan base by vilifying anything to do with work and risk.

And Mike Rowe’s fans cheered when he gave Bernie Sanders this devastating reality check about hard work when he went after Sanders’ latest proposal.

Dirty Jobs host Mike Rowe is an advocate for the skilled blue-collar workers who make sure the lights turn on and the water is running.

His mikeroweWORKS Foundation promotes the often-maligned skilled trades as a noble and necessary career path.

Mike Rowe weighs in on latest Bernie Sanders’ latest socialist scheme

Rowe appeared on Fox Business, where he said that work has become a scapegoat for the problems plaguing modern society.

He said that the 32-hour workweek bill proposed by U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is the most recent example of work being demonized.

Sanders claimed the plan wasn’t a “radical idea” and demanded that Americans get an extra day off while keeping the same pay.

“Everything I’ve seen . . . [offers] example after example of what our country and what our society is doing to literally vilify work,” Rowe said. “Work has become the proximate cause of all our pain, all our unfulfillment, all of our misery, and you can see that by the fact that retirement is still the brass ring — the thing that everybody is somehow working toward.”

Rowe noted that Sanders – a career politician since 1981 – is a “great example” of a person still working at 82 years old.

Sanders’ latest scheme is designed to put the country on the path to European-style socialism by destroying productivity and the country’s work ethic.

The value of hard work is being lost

The once timeless American value of hard work is being lost because of the Left’s agenda to replace personal responsibility and accountability with government dependence.

Rowe said that work ethic is something that has to be taught.

“We’re not born with work ethic,” Rowe remarked. “My foundation offers work ethic scholarships precisely because if somebody doesn’t make a case for it, we’re all going to default to our default positions.”

His foundation rewards people who demonstrate a strong work ethic with the opportunity to attend trade school free of charge.

“If you want to make a case for work ethic — we just got a work ethic curriculum into a big public school. It’s taken three years,” Rowe explained. “We’ve attached $5 million for the top people in that class to go to any trade school they want in the country, full ride. I’m not patting myself on the back for this, I’m just saying that we need better examples of people who will cheerfully take
hold of a thing and lift.”

Work ethic is a concept that’s completely lost on someone like Bernie Sanders.

A 2016 book, We Are As Gods, claimed the socialist Senator was thrown out of a Vermont hippie commune in 1971 because he refused to work.

After more than 40 years as a politician, he’s become a multimillionaire who owns three homes.

Sanders can afford to vilify work because of his lucrative career in public service.
