The May jobs report showed the unemployment rate at  7.6%, which equates to approximately 12 million Americans looking for work.

Mike Rowe's goal is simple, to take the stigma off skilled labor and to teach children vocational skills in elementary and high school, which could help them in the workforce.

Rowe plans on changing the game through mikeroweWORKS, a resource center aimed at training workers in trades and new technologies.

Maher's whip smart series is now into its 11th season  on HBO, with an instant replay at 11:00 p.m. following the live presentation. Allowing Maher to offer his unique perspective on contemporary issues, the show includes an opening monologue, roundtable discussions with panelists, and interviews with in-studio and satellite guests.

Bobby Ghosh, international editor, TIME is the top-of-show interview guest. TV host Mike Rowe is the mid-show interview guest. The roundtable guests are columnist Matt Lewis, political consultant Liz Mair and professor Cornel West.
