WATCH: Ben Franklin’s Industry Virtue — There is ‘Dignity’ in All Work, Even Flipping Burgers

Today on Bold TV, we continued our Ben Franklin Circles! Ben Franklin Circles is a nationwide initiative led by 92Y, the Hoover Institution and Citizen University to bring people together to talk about shared values. Today’s virtue was “industry” — Ben Franklin said, “Lose no time. Be always employed in something useful. Cut off all unnecessary actions.”

Bold founder Carrie Sheffield and Peter Cove joined us to discuss the virtue of industry and how even flipping burgers can help us become actualized. Peter is the founder of America Works and the Work First foundation, and author of Poor No More: Rethinking Dependency and the War on Poverty.
