Top definition
A Gray Collar Worker is a member of the service class. While a blue collar worker is a proletarian and primarily manual labour worker (such as a factory worker), and a white collar worker is a bourgeoisie class member (a lawyer).

The Gray Collar Working class does not have the riches of the white collar workers, nor the pride, nor unity of a blue collar worker.

The greatest work on Gray Collar Workers is in the film "Fight Club." It describes the lack of self-confidence, feeling of no masculinity, and the feeling of incompetence with near perfection.
Examples of a Gray Collar Worker:
-Security Guard
-Convenience Store Clerk
-Fast Food Worker
-Waiter
You get the point.
