How to use "Blue-collar" in context?

There is no single definition of a "blue-collar worker." In general, though, blue-collar workers are those who perform manual labor, such as working with their hands. These workers often earn less than white-collar workers and are often concentrated in lower-paying jobs.

There are many reasons why blue-collar workers earn less than white-collar workers. First, blue-collar workers often have less education than white-collar workers. They are also more likely to work in physically demanding jobs. Finally, blue-collar workers are more likely to be entry-level jobs, which pay less than more senior positions.
