‘Work is a beautiful thing’: Powerful 60 second video renews Americans’ pride

Dirty Jobs” host Mike Rowe teamed up with Wal-Mart to make a compelling video describing the most basic commodity of humankind — labor, and the dignity it provides.

Whether it’s digging a road-side ditch or solving a problem in quantum physics, the nobility of labor offers a satisfaction and fills a need that can’t be replaced by free health care or an EBT card.

It’s the sense of satisfaction a farmer gets at the end of the day while gazing on a freshly-plowed field, the way a factory worker feels seeing a pallet of newly-manufactured goods or how a writer sees his own words on a once-blank piece of paper. The response is the same: an inward smile at realization that “I did that.”

Although President Obama continues to tout the number of jobs he’s created, the fact is, the labor participation rate is at its lowest since 1978, when Jimmy Carter was president, according to CNN/Money.

There are over 1 million fewer people working today than there were six years ago, according to CNS News.

The Affordable Care Act is going to cost an additional 2.5 million American jobs, according to recent Congressional Budget Office estimates.

Rather than argue with its figures, the Obama administration has been spinning the Congressional Budget Office report as a good thing — to allow Americans to spend more time with their family, to engage in the arts or to just relax.

But that ignores the truth of Rowe’s closing words in the video: “Work is a beautiful thing.”

    Is all of Walmarts stuff made in AMERICA? it should be…but I doubt it is. This is a joke unless we all buy American made…

    My dad always told me “Whatever you do, do your best, even if it’s sweeping floors.”

  4. Josef Roesler says:

    That’s a nice commercial and it sounds all patriotic and such, but the fact is, at least 90% of Walmart’s shelves are stocked with Chinese merchandise. So what are they actually trying to say here? They really don’t like making BILLIONS selling Chinese products?

    1. seazen says:

      They are just using more of their billions in an effort to buy dignity and assure that we don’t raise the minimum wage. Hypocritical piece of advertising, at best.

    Uh, huh! The ‘ULTIMATE LIBERAL/SOCIALIST, UTOPIA’ !!!!!!!!!!!

  6. apricered says:

    Let me posit a solution!!! Elect Donald Trump as pres.!!!! At least he would make it possible to bring the business’s back to America with ‘tax forgiveness’ incentives, which would provide MORE jobs!!!! We know how he feels about China. So,I think, he would get that debt PAID OFF or down to where it is manageable; let the Pipeline be built; REPEAL Obamacare; replace ALL the socialists BO has put in place, and replace them with competent, QUALIFIED people; do away with a few worthless agencies!!! And, last but not least, RESTORE this country to greatness!!!!!!!

    The argument between the liberty school and the collectivists is not one about improvement, but rather about the best ways of doing so.

  8. sickandtired says:

    This is a WalMart add…Why is WalMart importing such a huge amount of product from China? I am not sure of the percentage but I would say over, 90% of product is imported. Not all from China though. There is Pakistan, India, etc, etc.

  9. Plow Comms says:

    Those who preach from collectivism’s altar commonly offer subjective merit as an alternative to the objective utility that determines the value of one’s knowledge and skills in a free country.
