Journeyman rate is something above $30/hour or something like that. Blue collar is no different than white collar in that if you're at the bottom, you don't get paid, but if you're good at what you do, you can make some very, very serious bank.

I think he means he wears a shirt and tie for his paper route, and his allowance isn't half what it should be, but expects a raise from his parents in the near future.

Blue collar when I'm out in the field.

White collar when I'm in the office.

nehru collar, any colour.

nah, im sort of a mis-match. I spend at least part of the year swinging a shovel and so forth and the other part looking through a microscope, in a lab, doing lit review. I guess its not really either.

what about green collar? Anyone on ISH riding the next wave in employment opportunities?

white collar. i perform valuations of businesses and assets for financial and tax reporting purposes. basically, company A buys company B for $100 million, and I have to value what consitutes the $100 million. I focus on intangible assets such trade names, technology, customer relationships, non-compete agreements, various other contracts.

i wear a white shirt, suit, and tie everyday. i sell high end document scanning and retrieval equipment and software, copiers, and printers.

i go door to door though (business to business). i'll roll up my sleeves and loosen my tie and walk up a block of industrial businesses making sales calls, or i'll put my suit jacket on and make calls in a high rise building while trying not to get thrown out by security.

i sometimes feel like i'm a little blue and white collar as i have to be whoever my prospective client wants me to be.

I want to be white collar, but as of now I'm pretty much no color. My job kinda sucks pay-wise. I have expensive tastes, not so much money.

Same with me.

When I'm out in the yard, I would be blue collar - loading trains and handling material.

When I'm in the office, I'd be white collar shipping trains/trucks, customer planning, doing paperwork, preparing reports… and surfing internets

The thing is, I enjoying doing work and being active. There is alot more mental stress when being white collar. A typo can cost the company millions… and then I'll be without a job.
