“Dirty Jobs” host Mike Rowe appeared on CNN Wednesday to discuss a new Walmart ad that has the left in an uproar — Rowe narrated the commercial that highlights Walmart’s pledge to spend $250 billion on American-made products over the next ten years.
Walmart is a frequent target of organized labor and their proxies, such as OUR Walmart, who use low wages as a talking point in the ongoing effort to unionize the nation’s largest retailer.
Suggesting to CNN host Erin Burnett that “context matters,” Rowe shared his views on “who’s ‘The One Percent’ and who’s not,” The Daily Caller reported.
“I’ve spent 10 years crawling through sewers, painting bridges, sexing chickens, milking camels,” he explained. “I worked with people who don’t have time to talk about who’s got it worse and who’s got it better.”
