It’s a Dirty Job…..

By July 31, 2005General

Not sure if any of you have been watching the yucky Discovery Channel series, “Dirty Jobs“. As the website promo says, “Starting in August, our brave host and apprentice Mike Rowe will introduce you to a hardworking group of men and women who overcome fear, danger and sometimes stench and overall ickiness to accomplish their daily tasks.” Among the tasks profiled are serving slop to pigs, collecting garbage, cleaning septic tanks and removing bones from fish. Wow — and we thought working in Washington could be bad. Assuming you don’t have any of these jobs, this show will make you run to your office in the morning and hug your co-workers.

As a public service, we should also take this opportunity to remind you that — far from the all-too prevalent public perception — manufacturing is a great career, rife with technology that requires good skills. The best way to make sure you don’t have to spend a life in one of these jobs is to prepare yourself for a career in manufacturing. Our plants are clean, quiet and hum with the sound of technology. Here’s a link to our “Dream It, Do It” campaign, for more information about manufacturing careers.

OK, public service message is over. Everybody back in the tank! Here’s a link to the schedule of upcoming “Dirty Jobs” shows.
