another short English lesson: "blue-collar" and "white collar".

Maybe I'm repeating myself, but, these words are descriptions of jobs or employed persons. "Blue collar" jobs or people describe things that relate more to manual labor and "trades". For example, public works employees (such as garbage pick-up, mowing grass, shoveling snow, street sweeping, etc.), factory workers, auto and truck mechanics, truck drivers, plumbers, carpenters, roofers, construction workers. Not so much retail though. Also, note that some of these require much more skill and training than others.

In contrast, "white collar" usually means people who work in an office, bank or similar place. Clerical workers, accountants, computer programmers, government bureaucrats, clerks, an so forth.

Next, maybe I'll explain to you what "popular culture" is...


*party on everyone* : D
