    I prefer blue collar work really. However, I've been doing white collar work for about 7 years now. Atleast when I did manual labor I was fit and tan. Now I'm behind a desk 10 hours per day M-Th

    I worked for 10 years in the construction business right outta high school. Did everything from building dog houses to building houses, interior (electric, plumbing, drywall, etc) and exterior (roofing, vinyl/wood siding, framing).

    I have worked the past 7 years in the IT business, sitting on my ass fixing problems across the united states remotely.

    When it's anywhere from 50-80 degrees, I wish I was back at work outside in the fresh air. My body does not agree with this though. Everything hurt later in my career.

    When it's freezing/raining/snowing or what not and super cold/hot, I am SUPER happy to be indoors sitting on my ass. My body does not agree with this though. Gained some weight and lost any tan I carried year round.

    That should be pink collar.

    White/Blue collar jobs should be reserved for men.

    You're always working for someone. Money doesn't fall into your lap. If it does, do you have any openings available?

    I work for myself. I did the hard work a few years ago, now I sit around and collect money most days of the week.

    I'm an independent contractor. I too work for myself, but the money comes from some service to another.

    I've always been white collar.
    As a guy who loves the outdoors, it gets pretty hard sometimes to be stuck in an office all day, every day.
    My office has a nice view to the golf course but it only makes me more eager to be outside having a beer rather than sitting here in a suit.

    I've thought about changing professions to something more technical or physical.
    But then again, I like nice things and doing fun things and this office job pays for those things, so here I am.

    White collar for the money, which is what I do.
    Would rather do blue collar work because it’s more enjoyable.

    That's me right there. I love being able to move around and do stuff, but the pay is nowhere close.

    Desk jobs are for women. If you’re doing anything a women might be able to do better than you just go to the roof of the high rise you work in and jump off

    What do you make ? People have this misconception that people in the trades don’t make good money. Couldn’t be further from reality.
