    What do you do/ which would you prefer?

    Never had a desk job. Closest to it was my first job at 16, I worked as a cashier at a store a family member managed. Other than that, everything has been manual labor. I worked on a commercial fishing boat doing invasive trout removal for the last 3 years, and currently working at a warehousing job wrapping pallets/ driving a forklift.

    Have zero interest in a desk job until I get older. I've broken a few bones over the years, definitely don't want to be a sore old fuck lugging boxes around in my 60s. But in the meantime I enjoy physical, hard work.

    As a male stripper I feel as though your thread title discriminates against collarless work.

    Both their benefits/drawbacks. If you like physical work, I would strongly consider getting into a skilled/protected trade if I were you.

    I've been strongly considering trying to go into welding. School is relatively cheap, pay seems excellent. Already in debt from school anyway, what's a few more grand.

    White collar made me much more money. You have to step your physical hobby game up though.

    I had an older guy (mid 50s) at work tell me to do myself a favor and go to school and get a job that way. Unfortunately, most tech positions for my field of study start at significantly less than what I'm making now.

    I wish I could make money shaking my booty. Life is not that easy or everyone would be doing it. And I wouldn't be in my sweats if I did

    Yeah man, it's rough. It all depends on your field. If it isn't a good fit, or you're too old to get in while the getting is good(young with no bills), then blue collar is the better option.

    That being said; I would rather my job not be dependent on my body's welfare. You can always use spare time to make yourself a specimen.

    I'm a blue collar person working a white collar job for the last 20 years. I much prefer manual work, but I can't get a manual job around here making near what I make behind a computer as a design engineer.

    I've been working towards eating healthier and taking better care of myself. I went from an early morning shift (4 am to afternoon) to the graveyard shift (8 pm to 4 30) though and it's been kicking my ass energy wise.
