blue collar: I work with my hands to create the goods and services that people in my community need. I may be of any race, gender, religious belief, sexual orientation, or political affiliation. Without people like me, this country would cease to exist as we know it.
"I work, therefore I am." Rene Descartes, philosopher and laborer
A white collar worker may also be a member of the working class. In some cases white collar workers make less money than blue collar workers.
