On his show “Dirty Jobs,” Mike Rowe looks for people who are willing to roll up their sleeves and do whatever it takes to put food on the table.
“It’s not just a tribute to blue-collar work and hard work, it’s a tribute to entrepreneurship,” he told CNBC’s "Street Signs"on Tuesday.
With unemployment running above 8 percent, Rowe said that“it’s not just about 10 million too few jobs, it’s about 10 million too many employees.”

“On our show, we try to find people who are willing to, through a lens of entrepreneurship, roll up their sleeves, get their hands dirty and not wait for something to be created for them necessarily,” he said.
