Exposing The Cost Of Putting Safety First & Expensive College | Mike Rowe Video by The Rubin Report
Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to Mike Rowe (star of “Dirty Jobs” and “Somebody’s Gotta Do It,”) about risk assessment and the effects of the lockdowns. Mike discusses our safety obsessed culture and the unintended consequences of putting safety first above all other things. Mike gives examples of how extreme safety increases reckless behavior and decreases personal responsibility.
Mike thinks a better idea to help public health and safety is to put more attention to risk management strategies while getting back to living our normal lives.
Mike discusses why he originally did Dirty Jobs as a tribute to essential workers that were often overlooked. Mike also discusses the damage done by the government putting us into categories of essential and non-essential workers. He criticizes politicians and others who devalue work and see it as just something we do for a paycheck. Mike thinks this demeaning of how people make a living overlooks the sense of purpose we get through our jobs.
Finally Mike talks about how COVID-19 will permanently change many aspects of our lives. He thinks the pandemic has already revealed college and higher education to be an overpriced luxury credentialing system. He hopes that this will cause us to rethink how we structure education in the US.
