The real world of employment. White-collar workers in the private sector are usually either self-serving pricks that exploit subordinates or office drones that just try to go about their business and suck it up. And the blue-collar workers are those that break their backs working for slave wages just so they can pay their bills and put food on the table. Politics are rampant with most private sector companies that only take care of those that are friends of the boss or management.
