Dirty Jobs Television Show
By: The Working Man

Dirty Jobs is a US television show on Discovery Channel on which
the host, Mike Rowe, will go anywhere in the country to do Dirty
Jobs that have been suggested by the viewers. These jobs have
ranged from pouring concrete to digging up blood worms. In all
cases these are real jobs, and real people who offer Mike Rowe an
inside look into the jobs they do every day.

Essentially this show lets everyone know more about the
"invisible jobs" that often go unnoticed but that make our
society work. These jobs are usually "dirty," meaning that they
are physically hard and often done under trying environmental
conditions and the people that do them day in and day out deserve
some recognition for their efforts and often sacrifices for
society at large.
