blue collar crimesWhat is Blue-Collar Crime?

The designators “blue-collar” and “white-collar” are metaphorical descriptions of the types of jobs individuals have. A white-collar worker may work in an administrative or managerial position, while a blue-collar worker may participate in more manual labor. These designations have also been used to describe types of crimes.

While “Blue-Collar Crime” is not an official legal term, many still use it in contrast with white-collar crime. Blue-collar crimes are typically easier to recognize than white-collar crimes, as white-collar crimes occur with business professionals and government leaders (often involving a type of fraud). Blue-collar crimes tend to be simpler to resolve, as the law that was broken might be more obvious, such as something someone could witness on the street.

Here are some examples of common blue-collar crimes in Florida:

  • Drug crimes such as distribution, manufacturing, and possessing 
  • Theft Crimes such as armed robbery, burglary, or shoplifting
  • Violent crimes such as murder, assault & battery, 
  • Sex Crimes such as sexual assault and prostitution
