A blue collar worker refers to someone whose profession requires them to perform a good amount of manual labor. Some of the most common industries that employ these individuals include warehousing, oil fields, firefighting, construction, manufacturing, sanitation, custodial work and technical installations. Most blue collar workers are paid hourly wages although some individuals with these jobs receive an annual salary or get paid by the job. Blue collar jobs are highly specialized and require someone to be skilled in performing a certain task. However, for the most part, they do not require any formal education. A high school diploma or GED is typically all that is required for this kind of work. Most blue collar workers need to wear durable clothing such as cotton or canvas so that it will remain viable even after it has seen some use.
