Does it matter to you if you are a professional and end up on a blue collar job?

I know of some people who look at a blue collar-job as a second-class category and usually paid lesser than that of a white-collar job. Whereas, in other countries, blue-collar jobs are paid better than the other. What do you think? I would like to hear from you.

..Hi.. I wouldn't mind.. This days, it doesn't matter if you have a white or blue collar jobs.. what is important is, you have a job.. there are many professionals right now in our country who deosn't have jobs because they hesitate to work in blue collar jobs because they feel it will affect their ego.. but for me, it doesn't really matter and I would even appreciate those professionals who are working on blue collar jobs.. You are right, sometimes, blue collar jobs have higher pay than white collar jobs..

I think you're right. It's just really their ego that matters in not grabbing the blue-collar jobs even if that's the only work available. That's also one of the reasons why there are so many professionals nowadays who are jobless. Others think that being on a white-collar job is more superior than that on the blue-collar.
