Mike Rowe on How to Combat Unemployment & the Skills Gap

Television host Mike Rowe explained Wednesday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” the importance of fixing the “skills gap” in America.

Rowe said there are 5.6 million job openings waiting to be filled in fields that for the most part do not require a bachelor’s degree.

The former “Dirty Jobs” host and QVC pitchman said he’s sent letters to both former President Barack Obama and President Donald Trump drawing attention to that fact.

“There’s a belief … in the country that we can cure unemployment by creating opportunity,” Rowe said. “The skills gap proves that opportunity along is not enough to get people employed.”

“It’s a sucker’s bet … You have to be talking about jobs that are uniformly cared about,” Rowe said, referencing many trades where such job openings exist.
