white-collar

Describing a professional or position whose work responsibilities do not include manual labor (i.e. like that of a so-called blue-collar worker). The name comes from the formal dress typically worn by such workers. One of the problems is that too many people are training for white-collar jobs, when what we need are more highly skilled blue-collar workers.
