Person who gets stuck in a dead-end blue-collar job at a factory and spends decades in a position he despises; only to retire with an environmental issue or lousy pension.
My days in Detroit were the lousiest days of my life. I was a Factory Rat with no college education.

Factory Rat - "Where do you work?"

Man in suit - "I'm an accountant for the firm that owns that giant high-rise right there. How about you?"

Factory Rat - "Ive been working at the steel mill since I graduated high school"

Man in suit - "You suck."
