TV Host Mike Rowe Has Chilling Prediction for America… If We Don’t Stop It, THIS Will Happen!


America is a proud country- a nation of immigrants who have embraced the Christian work ethic. As a nation, we have prospered and become wealthy. Each generation has been a little better off than the one before.

But in Obama’s America, that is changing. Millennials are putting off work and marriage, while taking out too much student loan debt. Responsibility and hard work is being ignored, and instant gratification is sought. TV Host Mike Rowe, who recently sat down for an interview with The Blaze, thinks this is a recipe for disaster:

“They are going to be retired for 40 years? There’s just no universe possible where you have enough money to live on if you’re an average Joe, 40 years after punching out,” he told TheBlaze. “Part of the reason, I think, we’re facing such a mess is because people are truly still clinging to the idea that, ‘OK, I worked for 30 years and now I’m done.’ That’s crazy.”

Rowe, of “Dirty Jobs” fame, also said one of the biggest problems in pop culture is the tendency to make work the “enemy,” which he said is a very dangerous concept. And though the solution to the terrifying problem is complicated, he argued putting an end to the myth that people should work as little as possible would be a big step in the right direction.

“If the key to happiness is working less, we’re in trouble,” Rowe added. “It’s that simple. Work can’t be the enemy, unless it is, and if you make it the enemy — look out.”

Absolutely! Work is to be welcomed, not shunned. We are governed by leaders who encourage laziness and sloth with policies which exchange votes for handouts. That mind set is un-American, and it’s destroying America.

Do you agree with Mike Rowe? Please leave us a comment and tell us what you think!



  1. Agreed. Proverbs 14:23 In all labor there is profit, But mere talk leads only to poverty
    I come from good stock. People simple in speech yet profound in what was said. Folks who personify this verse. Retiring from one “job” after 30 years the last 15 have been a series of play “jobs”.

    I don’t disagree…but this has been brewing since the late 1980’s, and just keeps getting worse. This isn’t a political thing, like it’s Obama’s fault or Bush’s fault, it’s a social problem. Folks need to stop placing blame and start finding solutions. My kids are learning the hard way that life is tough, but they’re making it on their own. They’re struggling, but they’re working their butts off. (And the only thing I pay for is their phone, so they’ll call once in a while hopefully!)

  3. Jeff says:

    He should run for President.

  4. Gary says:

    LBJ created “THE GREAT SOCIETY AND INTEGRATION,” which has proven to be the greatest cancer known to mankind!! Barack Hussein Obama, old white hippies, their children, their grandchildren, Millenials and Liberal viewpoints will be the demise of America in less than two, (2,) years!! The Magic Negro and his tribal cult will see to it!!

  5. Mahaileanne says:

    This is a start, getting the word out. I am a product of work ethic, had to work for everything I have, since 13, never thought about retiring, always volunteering. Sloth leads to death, bottom line!

  6. Wulfgar says:

    Only problem here is the “Christian” work ethic. The Northern European industriousness and work ethic was around well before Christianity made its way there.

  7. Misty says:

    Right on! Sadly I am no longer in the work force at 34 due to injuries sustained in the military. As someone who is medically unable to be a productive employee, I envy that people who are. Sure I have plenty of free time to do whatever I want. However; my social circle nor my finances allow me the ability to travel where I want to, get pampered at the spa, sip mimosas by my Olympic size pool outside my mansion while laughing at the people heading to work. Yes I get a paycheck but it will never be enough to have financial freedom in the world we live in today. It took me a very long time to not feel invaluable, because I am unable to work.

  8. Jesus says:

    Damn that Obama! In Bush’s America everything wuz perfict.

  9. J says:

    I couldnt agree more. After twenty years of putting my back into it. I have noticed a steady decline in what I would call a hard worker. I have co-workers who truely believe that just showing up is enough. And requires a high wage, what a joke. What’s even worse the limited abilities of companies to correct this problem. We continue to force small buisness to pay more on the hour. But we give them no provision to require a higher amount of production. Earning your keep is quickly fading in this country. But its a new generation, thats been given everything.All the way down to poor families. So when they become adults we expect them to just flip a switch. Reality time folks!!! All current problems we face in America today. Have been breed and cultivated at home. It all starts there, dont change that . Never correct it any otherway.

  10. Marcia says:

    I agree whole heartedly with Mike ‘ s assessment of the prevailing attitude towards work in America. I am in education and I see the hands out all the time for whatever is free. It’s very discouraging for those of us who work hard and paid for our education to be able to do what we do.

  11. Kathy says:

    Sadly i do agree. Working for a nice home and affordable automobile and private school for your children is rewarding. To be lazy and unmotivated and expecting handouts will never fulfil you…it will never be enough, and so goes depression, anger, stealing what others have worked hard for, and suicide is mot truly what you want your future to look like…be honest to yourself and make an honest living for you and your family. Dont let big govt own you body and soul.

  12. Jo says:

    Mike always tells it like it is. I taught my children Christian worth ethic and they work, they pay bills and are proud of their accomplishments. Having a job, especially one you enjoy is rewarding, millennials should try it, it is far better than being getting free stuff.

    1. Jo, besides free, they became slaves! But no one see it that way and more keeping falling for the trapp, just like flies to the sugar jar.Why you think it’s the reason why Obama fights all the possibility of unleashing the economy?? A nation with more in need people keeps the government in power.

  13. ML says:

    I totally agree. Not too far to go with this nut job in office.

  14. Wayne says:

    Preach it, Mike! I have the coolest job in the world and have for 26 years!
