Mike Rowe spoke with Kennedy about his foundation getting folks trained for real jobs

Dirty Mike Rowe runs the mikeroweWORKS Foundation over at ProudlyDirected. The Foundation "is a 501(c)(3) public charity that rewards people with a passion to get trained for skilled jobs that actually exist. As CEO of the Foundation, Mike Rowe spends a significant amount of time speaking about the country’s dysfunctional relationship with work, highlighting the widening skills gap, and challenging the persistent belief that a four-year degree is automatically the best path for the most people."

The Foundation has been instrumental in granting more than $3 million in education for trade schools across the country."

Last night he joined Kennedy (whose guns were poppin') to talk jobs.
