Help Put Masonry on Dirty Jobs

Help put the masonry industry on an episode of Dirty Jobs!

Josh Naragon of the Ohio Masonry Association has started a post on the Dirty Jobs Show Ideas Message Board to have the masonry industry featured on Dirty Jobs. Naragon, who represents the concrete block producers in Ohio, writes, “Our factory workers constantly complain about how dirty their job is, and finding new employees is just about impossible... experiencing production through installation and cleaning would make a great complete story."

We love Josh’s idea and want to see the masonry industry showcased on Dirty Jobs, but we need your help! Several people have already gotten behind the idea and posted their support. The more people that reply in favor of seeing the industry on Dirty Jobs, the better chance we have of the episode being made!

Replying with your support is quick and easy. Simply visit the Dirty Jobs Show Ideas Message Board and create a free log in. Once you are registered, head back to the Big Block Dirt Bag topic to post your comment and rate the program idea.

Dirty Jobs profiles the unsung American laborers who make their living in the most unthinkable — yet vital — ways. Brave host and apprentice Mike Rowe will introduce you to a hardworking group of men and women who overcome fear, danger and sometimes stench and overall ickiness to accomplish their daily tasks. Not one to just stand by, each week, Rowe will assume the duties of the jobs he's profiling, working alongside rattlesnake catchers, fish processors, bee removers, septic-tank technicians and other professionals: average folks tackling extraordinary tasks that simply must get done. Dirty Jobs can be seen at Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Discovery Channel. For more information about the show visit

Forward this information to your family, friends, employees, and coworkers and we could see the masonry industry on Dirty Jobs!
