    His degree is in Health & Human Performance, so he can either be a PE teacher or other fitness director/consultant type of position.

    I was an Army medic and now work in a health care lab.

    Both white collar – I’m a teacher and he does something with computers that I don’t fully understand 🙂

    I love my blue-collar baby 😉

    FI is a… cleaner/helping hand/assistant and more in an aircraft hanger. He’s side by side to help the engineers but he doesn;t have a title hahaha.

    Me, Im a cleaner at the moment and am breaking into a job as a technical assistant, dunno what that is but I would probably still say blue collar 🙂

    I’m a manager in the healthcare field and he is a mathmatician (he is working on his phd right now).  We’ve worked very hard to get where we are today.

    Both of my parents are blue collar (farming, factory work, nurse aid) and his parents are white collar.

    At the moment I’m white, he’s blue. Im a grad student in education (similar to curriculum and instruction), and have worked as a teacher for a few years.He works as a stoker in a large supermarket chain. We are hoping the supermarket is temporary though, as he has a science degree. Just no jobs in his field at the moment, so he’s working where he needs to pay the bills.

    I’m white (ad woman) he’s blue (HVAC tech). We both love our jobs, which is huge, because I know so many who don’t. I always thought I would end up with a teacher or a lawyer, never an HVAC tech! Haha. But the economy in this day and age demands more “blue collar” jobs, while the “white collar” jobs are looking pretty thin and hard to find. DH likes to fix things, and solve problems, hence how he came about his profession. I like to talk, write and design, hence how I came about mine.

    We don’t really fit into a distinct blue or white category.  DH’s role is probably closest to pink collar, although with some white & blue mixed together.

    We are both white collar. I find his motivation and passion for what he does way sexier than the fact that it’s a white collar job.

    He is getting his phD is clinical psychology and I am in an office job in Communications. I’m hoping to leave this field soon and pursue nursing or another career in the health field, so I’ll still be white collar.
