: What is the origin of the phrase, "Blue Collar Worker"...????
Blue collar as compared to a white collar on the shirt that you wore to your job.
People who work/worked in an indstrial setting will usually wear a non-white shirt on the job while people who work in the office performing clerical duties will wear a white shirt.
