During Mike Rowe's interview with CNN News, he answered to fans who were upset about his voice narration for Walmart. Mike's participation in the Walmart advertisement was criticized for what fans described as selling out since they had previously thought of Mike Rowe as an advocate for hard working people and skilled laborers. These fans feel that because of Walmart's outsourcing of over an estimated 130,000 + manufacturing jobs to China, that this was definitely not a company that Mike Rowe should be involved with. Mike Rowe explained to CNN that building a relationship with Walmart was a good way to address the problem.
