CBC television (in Canada) has been running a series called "Make the Politician Work", where they take some fairly high level political leaders and put them to work "in the trenches" of an industry related to their job for a couple of days. They put the Defence Minister through field training for deployment to Afghanistan, an East coast provincial premier worked on a lobster fishing boat, a western political leader worked on a cattle ranch, etc. Nothing secret about it, everyone knows who they are, but designed to really be an eye-opener to the politicians as to what "real people" do for a living.
