collar color?

I  was having a discussion with someone recently who said they left an outdoor job (forestry, in their case) because they were tired of being dirty and they wanted to have a white-collar job.

It's funny - when I was in the environmental consulting biz, I always thought that I did have a white-collar job. One that involved a fairly extensive travel schedule and fieldwork, sure. But I wrote reports and did analyses, and I had an advanced degree as well.

Maybe convenient job classifications don't work as well for scientists...
