'Dirty Jobs' star Mike Rowe talks work with Mitt Romney in Ohio

25 September 2012 11:47 PM, PDT | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Mike meets Mitt on Wednesday (Sept. 26) in the Buckeye State to talk about how to get America back to work.

Mike Rowe is host of Discovery's "Dirty Jobs" and the new "How Booze Built America," airing Wednesdays, but he has a spin-off career as creator of mikeroweWORKS.com, a Website and a movement dedicated to functioning as a PR campaign for traditional, hands-on jobs.

"I really believe," Rowe tells Zap2it, "part of the reason that three million shovel-ready jobs entirely imploded is the fact that [President Barack Obama] was trying to sell that notion to a country that doesn't want to pick up a shovel."

Back in early September, Rowe, as he did for the newly elected Obama in 2009, wrote an open letter to Gop presidential candidate Mitt Romney about the state of work in America, stating, "If you read the whole thing, I'll vote for you in November."
