Who are Blue Collar Workers? | Meaning & Definition | Akrivia HCM

Blue collar workers are those who are engaged in manual labor or perform work that requires physical effort. Examples include employees who work in factories, construction sites, field workers, mechanics, plumbers, welders, carpenters, and assembly line workers.

These type of workers tend to have more physical challenges than white collar workers. They perform repetitive tasks, which involve lifting heavy objects, standing for long periods. They often work outdoors, where there’s a risk of getting hurt.

Blue collar workers generally earn less than white collar workers as they don’t have access to the same education or training available at higher employment levels.
