White-collar workers perform tasks which are less "physically laborious" yet often more highly paid than blue-collar workers, who do manual work.

The name derives from the traditional white, button down shirts worn by workers of such professions. The white shirts are easily soiled and therefore distinguish the workers who "do not get their hands dirty." ...more on Wikipedia about "White-collar worker"
