I'm in the US and some blue collar jobs can be paid just as much or more than some white collar jobs. For example skilled workers such as electricians, plumbers, mechanics, carpenters and the like can make more than say a white collar middle manager. So just because someone doesn't wear a suit and tie to work doesn't mean they aren't making a lot of money.

For the most part, white collar workers earn more yearly income in the USA. But, there are certain blue collar jobs that pay exceptionally well too.
