“Dirty Jobs” star Mike Rowe took aim at liberal Democrat leaders Alexandria Acasio Cortez and Andrew Cuomo over their apparently dismissal of the unintented consequences that may arise from their embrace of draconian lockdown measures.
As The Daily Wire reports:
On Wednesday, former “Dirty Jobs” host Mike Rowe rebutted the notion of so-called “nonessential” workers in the time of COVID and warned of “unintended consequences” of the lockdown, specifically massive cuts to healthcare and a false sense of security that’s deepening tribal divides.
Speaking with Rowe, The Blaze’s Glenn Beck highlighted Democratic New York Governor Andrew Cuomo dismissing “nonessential” workers’ desire to get back to work to feed their families, and Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez suggesting Americans refuse to go back to work even after restrictions on the economy are lifted.
Cuomo and AOC are not appreciating the “dignity” of all work, Beck argued, American individualism, or the necessity for “nonessential” workers to reopen their businesses and get back to work.
Rowe, who’s highlighted so-called “essential” workers on his show “Dirty Jobs,” suggested there is no such thing as a “nonessential” worker.

Rowe went on to caution that the ‘one size fits all’ approach favored by many Democrat leaders could potentially lead to devastating consequences.
