From waste management to billboard installations, these jobs are dirty and dangerous, but someone’s gotta do it. This is the subject matter of TV host, Mike Rowe’s Discovery Channel reality series, Dirty Jobs. In each episode, Mike imbeds himself on the job with everyday American laborers who tend to the work most people either avoid or happen to pretend doesn’t exist. Crawling through sewers, getting elbow deep in muck and grime, or putting themselves in hazardous situations on a daily basis just to earn a paycheck and keep America’s hygiene and functionality civilized is something Mike experiences first hand for himself in each episode. Mike often gets in over his head with the work and often commends the workers for their skill (and strong stomachs) most of us couldn’t even imagine pulling off.
