Most of the guys who work 'blue collar' jobs are actually happy doing it. White collar jobs promote stress and anxiety, like you've witnessed personally.

Best Answer

Great point. I actually enjoyed work a lot more as a shop rat (lol) and if money weren't a factor, I would go back to CNC machining in a heartbeat. I was much less stressed and physically felt better.

Very True

It depends on the SPECIFIC blue collar/white collar job. A blue collar job dealing with volatile organic compounds is a very bad deal in spite of the increased physical activity, on the other hand my mom used to work quality control -- an "office" job, but she had to go around and collect samples for her tests, so she walked a LOT everyday, so the answer can vary.

I have done both types of work too, although the *blue collar* work I do doesn't require me to wear blue nor a collar, but you get my meaning. When I did office work, I got a headache every day. Was taking pain medication days, and something to help me sleep at night, then something to help me wake up in the morning. I was sluggish, my bodily functions didn't work well. I was a mes. Then in my early 30s, I changed jobs, and I stopped all medications for headaches; sleep aids were no longer needed and of course, that eliminated the need for wake up pills. I am physically and mentally healthier now than I was 40 years ago, in my 20s.

Best Answer

I've done both kinds of work...I would say white collar since you are sitting down most of the day slouched at a computer screen...it's just not healthy to sit that long. I did a lot of potentially hazardous heavy lifting/welding/working with dangerous machinery when I worked blue collar, but wow, I stayed in phenomenal shape and didn't need to exercise all of the time like I do now!

Right, I will say the nature of the work is less risky at a desk job, but the long term effects dont see to out way that.
