Origin:
A blue collar worker refers to the fact that most manual laborers at the turn of the century wore blue shirts, which could hold a little dirt around the collar without standing out.

This working class stands in contrast to white collar workers, which historically have had the higher-paying, salaried positions to go with their clean and pressed white shirts.

Usage:
- Aussie senator calls for commission on white-collar crimes.
- Very few applicants for blue-collar jobs in SF.
