Jack Kemp

Mike Rowe, of "Dirty Jobs" fame on tv, briefly lays out the case for good jobs that are not filled today (he mentioned specialy mechanics at Caterpillar, for example) because - in part - we are telling our high school students that they must go to college and often major in liberal arts or general business management or gender studies rather than have any of them try to match their skills to mechanical or technical jobs because their high school guidance counselor thought these other jobs "aren't cool." And this is also part of the reason why many veterans are having trouble finding work and are unemployed or even homeless.

Mike Rowe has a foundation that deals with technical school scholarships, etc., which can be found at

From 2013, a seven and a half minute Youtube video talking to Bill Maher.

Mike Rowe testifies in the U.S. Congress about how we have demonized hard work in our society and not publicized good paying jobs.

The first two and one half minutes of this 5.5 min. video on Youtube, as Mike Rowe tells a Congressman about something that can realistically be a way out of homelessness for unemployed veterans.
